Tuesday’s at the Square Foot Garden

— Written By

Join Master Gardener Volunteer Ellen Roberts at the Unity Park and Community Garden on Tuesdays during the season to see what’s growing in her Square Foot Garden Demonstration Bed.

Each Tuesday, Ellen will talk about what’s growing, what is ready to harvest, and what is going to be planted next in the bed. She will offer tips for growing different vegetables using the Square Foot Gardening method.

These events are free and open to all audiences. Come on out to hear how to grow lots of food in a small space!

Tuesdays at the Square Foot Garden will continue through the fall and will feature special topics such as pollinator gardens, grains and beans, hot peppers, and ginger and turmeric later in the season.
