Fall Into Vegetable Gardening
Saturday, August 8, 2015
Come and spend the morning with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service staff and the Dallas County Master Gardeners and learn how to successfully grow nutritious, delicious, and bountiful produce from your fall garden at the “Fall Into Vegetable Gardening” program on Saturday, August 8, 2015. Registration begins at 8:30 am with the program from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. The program will be held at the Dallas County Master Gardener’s RainCatchers Research, Education and Demonstration Garden at Midway Hills Christian Church located at 11001 Midway Road, Dallas, TX 75229.
There are many vegetables that will grow well during our cooler fall and winter months. Trained Certified Master Gardeners from Texas A&M AgriLife Extension will discuss the best vegetable varieties for fall planting and when to plant them. Extension staff and volunteer Master Gardeners will have hands-on workshops on soil preparation, how to construct raised beds, square foot gardening, rain water harvesting and how to install drip irrigation.
Attendees will also get to see how the Master Gardeners are developing a Research, Education and Demonstration garden for educational programming to both adults and children.
