Our last class in the Growing Groceries series will focus on growing the more challenging crops for our region, the heat lovers: tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and melons!
Join us to learn how Master Gardener Jeff Thompson gets tremendous production off his tomatoes, how Soil Sisters Plants & Produce owner Kate Ryan coaxes her peppers and eggplant to provide an abundant harvest, and Master Gardener Carol Bello ripens melons in the chilly environs of Granite Falls. You can find out how they do it and apply their secrets to your own garden.
No matter if you only have a tiny apartment deck, small garden space, or plenty of acreage you can grow fresh, healthy food in a healthier, more environmentally friendly way.
The WSU Snohomish County Growing Groceries program brings beginning and experienced gardeners together with speakers and topics focused on growing healthy food using sustainable gardening practices.
Developed over the last several years, the program’s goal is to increase our communities’ access to fresh, healthy food by teaching the latest research-based techniques for growing food.
