Garden Bed Preparation, Chadwick StyleBack to Calendar
|Date and Time:||March 25, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm|
Join Chadwick Garden manager Orin Martin and organic farmer Caroline Martin for a special workshop about garden bed preparation, featuring the classic double digging technique that Alan Chadwick introduced at the Student Garden Project (now the Chadwick Garden) 50 years ago.
Learn when and how to create and maintain garden beds, incorporate compost, and maintain your beds through the years with cover crops and careful cultivation practices. The workshop will also review “intensive” planting techniques, including intercropping, to maximize production in your garden beds.
Cost of the workshop is $30 general admission (pre-registered) or $40 (at the door); $20 for Friends of the Farm & Garden members (pre-registered) or $30 (at the door); $15 for limited-income (pre-registered) or $20 (at the door). $5 for UCSC students.
Please note: Heavy rain cancels. Rainout date is Sunday, April 2. Full refund if you cannot attend on the rainout date.
