Organic Gardening Program

Yes, the snow has piled up over the past few days, and probably the last thing you're thinking about is starting your garden. (Unless you're like some of us, who can't wait for that next glimpse of ground...) But it's never too early to start thinking and planning for this year's crops!

This Thursday, February 11 at 7 PM, Local Roots board member Monica Bongue will lead the first of two programs on organic gardening techniques. As the owner of Muddy Fork Farm in Wooster -- a certified organic farm -- she has learned many useful tips over the years and is willing to share them with you.

(Bongue is also president of the Real F.O.O.D. chapter of the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association, which meets at Local Roots on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 7 PM. You are welcome to join us!)

The second part of this series will be held on Thursday, March 11 at 7 PM. Both sessions will be held at the Local Roots Market building at 140 S. Walnut Street in Wooster.

Cost for the program will be:

$2 per session for Local Roots members
$4 per session for non-members
