An unheated greenhouse or cold frame can be used to grow greens during winter, start warm season annuals, propagate landscape perennials, and shelter frost tender plants through the winter chill. Besides greens like spinach and lettuce, you can grow cold-tolerant veggies such as cabbage and broccoli in a cold frame or hoop house.
Speaker: Kate Ryan of Soil Sisters Plants & Produce will share what she’s learned in over 30 years of growing and selling vegetables, herbs, flowers, and plants in western Washington. A self-professed lazy gardener, she’s learned from her many mistakes over the years. A founding member of the Growing Groceries program, Kate enjoys sharing what she’s learned over the years with others.
In partnership with WSU Snohomish County Master Gardeners, the Growing Groceries program brings beginning and experienced gardeners together with speakers and topics focused on growing healthy food using sustainable gardening practices.
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.
Developed over the last decade, our program goal is to increase community access to fresh, healthy food by teaching the latest research-based techniques for growing food.
