Tuesday, February 21: Growing Great Food and Flowers – in a Raised Bed
Local food is great food (and nutrient dense local food is the best!) – buy from famers' markets and farm stands – or grow it yourself! Then you'll really know what's in your food! Nutrient dense food tastes better, has more minerals, a longer shelf life and is more resistant to pests – like you when you get a cold –healthier is better… Come and learn from a group of adventurous local gardeners who've learned how to get great results from managing their soil and plants well – and then learn how to tuck that information into a 4'x8' space –with or without raised edges. This is fun and fascinating information that maximizes biological vitality – yours, your garden's and your little part of the planet. Truly a win–win-win!

Eloranta Room, Forbush Memorial Library, Westminster, MA

Reserve these dates for: Growing Great Garlic - March 21,
and Local Food: Origins and Options - April 18
