Grow Your Own Strawberries Workshop: Hands-On, Outdoors
April 1 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am$10
There’s nothing better than a bowl of just-picked, sweet, juicy strawberries harvested from your own garden. Growing strawberries is something you can do without a lot of time or effort. Join WSU Extension Clark County Master Gardeners for an introductory workshop on growing strawberries, Saturday, April 1 from 10 to 11:30am in Vancouver, WA.
The class will provide an overview of the three different types of strawberries followed by planting and care techniques for each. Common pests and diseases will be discussed, and storage and preservation will be covered (this portion is indoors; masks are welcome). Participants will learn how to plant (and take home) a bareroot strawberry plant.
The class will be held fully outdoors and will require walking short distances on uneven ground. Vancouver, WA (exact location provided via registration.) Those with mobility issues may drive into the site. Dress for the weather and bring water. Space is limited and participants will work in small groups.
