Learn how to become a more successful gardener through a series of hands-on workshops sponsored by UNH Cooperative Extension and the Massabesic Audubon Center:

Do you want to grow vegetables in your garden but don’t know where to start? Maybe you’ve tried in the past, but it doesn’t seem like your green thumb is working? Are you an experienced garden and want to learn more?

Make your garden flourish this year! The 2013 Garden Workshop Series, sponsored by UNH Cooperative Extension and the Massabesic Audubon Center, begins in March and runs through October, guiding you through every phase of your garden’s growing season.

The series kicks off in March with four workshops, beginning Wednesday, March 6 with “Vegetable Garden Planning.” Learn how to better plan your garden so that you can increase your garden yields, improve the quality of your vegetables, and work smarter not harder!

The workshops continue on March 13 – Growing Transplants from Seed; March 20 – The Nature of Soil and Soil Management; and March 27 – Container & Raised Bed Gardening. For a list of the entire series through October, please visit bit.ly/2013gardenseries.
