Garden Workshop

When I’m not working, or ranting and raving, I’m in the garden. (Those are my cherry tomatoes from last year.) The past couple of years I’ve had the great honor of working with the Southside Community Land Trust to teach others to grow healthy food. Next Saturday I’ll be teaching a workshop in the Beginning Growers Series. I’ll be covering Weeding, Harvesting, and Cultivating Fall Crops on July 9 from 10-11 am. (It’s not exactly LGBTQ but since I’m the instructor it will at least be a little queer.) I’ll be talking about my new favorite topic, organic fertilizing with fish emulsion, and there will be samples of fish emulsion to take home. The event is hosted by the Cadillac Drive Community Garden , which is worth seeing – I taught a bunch of workshops there last year and it totally knocked my socks off. The garden is near the corner of Early St. and Cadillac Dr., so get directions to 6 Cadillac Drive and come see the park. You can see the garden under construction and get directions here.
