Event Description

Linn County Master Gardener Series

Join us on the first 3 Wednesdays in November for our Fall/Winter Linn County Master Gardener Series at the Hiawatha Public Library!

Wednesday, November 15 at 6:30 pm - Raised Beds/Square Foot Gardening with LCMG Wil Carew

Get off the ground, save your back and start gardening closer to your hands and eyes.  Wil covers the principles of raised beds, shows many pictorial examples, and discusses construction techniques, trellis/cloche use and protecting crops from critters.  The benefits of square foot gardening in a raised bed include increasing the growing season, decreasing weeding and saving time.
