The Learning Garden Series begins Tuesday, March 3 at Prescott Farm

Gardeners of every experience level can kick off the 2020 growing season with confidence and know-how when they join Prescott Farm for The Learning Garden, a series of programs designed to guide growers through every step of the gardening process.

The Learning Garden at Prescott Farm is a space to explore organic gardening practices, ask questions, and even make mistakes. Gardeners with all levels of experience (including none at all) are welcome to learn together during our gardening series.

On Tuesday, March 3 (6-7:30 pm) Prescott Farm staff will lead “Starting Seeds”. The workshop provides hands-on experience so gardens will feel confident starting seeds that will grow into strong, resilient plants. Topics will include seed starting mediums, timing, heat and light requirements, and more. The seeds started on March 3 will be planted in Prescott Farm’s Learning Garden and be used throughout the spring, summer, and fall in educational programs like Fledglings Nature-based Preschool, WildQuest Camp, and Community Connection Programs.

Future Learning Garden programs include:

  • Saturday, April 4; 9:30-11 am – Season Extenders
  • Tuesday, May 19; 6-7:30 pm – Planting your Garden
  • Tuesday, June 2; 6-7:30 pm – Types of Tomatoes
