Wouldn’t it be nice if you didn’t have to run to the grocery store for fresh vegetables? What if you could just pick them out of your backyard?
An upcoming free workshop in Alpharetta aims to give you the tools and skills to do that.
On Aug. 29, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. the city is partnering with its natural resources commission to put on a free Fall Vegetable Gardening Workshop. It will be held at Alpharetta City Hall, at 2 Park Plaza.
The class is free, but registration is required. Head to Eventbrite to sign up.
“Our extended growing season allows us to take advantage of three seasons of vegetable gardening. If you already have a garden, you can extend its productivity,” a description for the class reads on the city’s website. “If you are just beginning, you can learn how to get started without working in the heat of summer.”
The city says that fall is the “perfect” time for growing lettuce, kale and spinach.
The class will be taught by UGA/Fulton County Cooperative Extension North Fulton Master Gardeners. They will teach techniques, seeding, transplanting, protection and how to prepare a garden for winter.
