Grow Your Own Organic Garden Spring 2020
with Jason Kafka
An introduction to the basics of organic gardening, presented by the Maine Organic Farmers & Gardeners Association (MOFGA). Interested in learning how to grow your own vegetables in a sustainable manner? Join us for an evening-long workshop on how to grow your own garden organically. We’ll talk about the basics of soil, the fundamentals of making and using compost, the principles of crop rotation, and how to incorporate green manures to manage nutrients in the garden. Other topics will include basic weed control strategies and cultural methods for dealing with pests. All are welcome, from first-timers to experienced gardeners who want to experiment with new techniques. Children 16 and younger must be accompanied by an adult. We will even send you home with free seeds and all attendees will receive a copy of the presentation as well as resource guide. Instructor Jason Kafka and his wife have been farming for over 30 years on their one-hundred acre farm, Checkerberry Farm, in Parkman, Maine.
