Join us for a series of 24 weekly classes designed for participants who desire to have a backyard garden and want to learn proper gardening techniques and procedures.
Mon., Apr. 17 - Mon., Oct. 11, 2017(9:00 - 11:00 AM)
Penn State Extension Franklin County181 Franklin Farm LaneChambersburg, PA 17202
The morning begins with a short class related to what is happening in the garden at that time of year. After the classroom time, participants will work outdoors in the garden alongside Master Gardeners. Harvested fresh produce will be shared by the participants. Space is limited, register today!
At their peak, there were more than 20 million Victory Gardens planted across the United States with more than 1 million tons of produce grown during WWII. Victory Gardens were not only a way to aid the war, they also allowed citizens at home to be a part of the war effort. Join the Franklin County Master Gardeners to learn how to start your own Victory Garden and grow enough fresh vegetables through the summer for immediate family and neighbors, and maybe enough to preserve for the winter months.
Participants are asked to wear garden clothes and to bring their own gloves. Garden tools will be provided at the workshop.
