Start Your Fall Organic Vegetable Garden

It’s time to plant out your fall and winter veggies: spicy arugula, beets, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, chard, lettuce, peas, spinach and more. Have year-round vegetables using organic and sustainable techniques. We will cover sowing seeds, caring for seedlings, when to plant, how and when to harvest, and how to keep life in your soil through compost, mulch, bed prep, cover crops, rotation and hedge rows.
