Do you want to get more fresh and healthy vegetables?  If you’ve ever seen your collard green plants last through the winter, surrounded by snow, you know it’s possible! Come to this workshop to learn about ways to lengthen your gardening season. We’ll discuss what to plant and when to plant it in order to get an early start on your fall harvests, as well as how to have a garden that lasts into the cold wintry months.  You will learn about techniques like row covering and mulching, low tunneling and the use of greenhouses.
