Lecture #1 Come to the farm for our first lecture on Saturday May 4th 3 pm-4:30 pm. Direct sowing, transplanting, bed preparation, soil testing and amendments, predator and weed control, varieties, and succession planting. Stick around for a Q&A, plant presale and social time from 4:30pm -5:30 pm BYOB!

Lecture #2 Saturday May 18th 3pm-4:30pm. All about Family Solanaceae: tomatoes, peppers, eggplant. Diseases, how to prevent, recognize & treat them organically. Pruning, stringing, staking, water and fertilizer needs. Understanding ongoing long-term care for this important and sensitive crop family. We will also discuss what to direct seed now and what to wait on, crop rotation and how to prepare for the hot weather to come.

Lecture #3 Saturday June 1, 3 pm-4:30 pm

This class will talk about growing outdoor cucurbits (cucumbers and squash), preventing disease and pest destruction, fertility needs, protection, and pollination. Pros and cons of different varieties will be reviewed. Training and trellising options will be discussed and demonstrated.

Lecture #4 Final class Saturday June 22nd 3 pm- 4:30 pm

I want to let the students drive the curriculum for this class. Based on questions and concerns from the first 3 lectures we will decide together on the 4th course. Perhaps an in depth tour of what is going on at OSF followed by a Q&A type lecture. Each group is different and I want everyone to get as much learning from this series as they can!

* this lecture series also offers a 25% coupon for an on-site consultation ($75 value) where I come to your garden, assess your planting setup, recommend soil amendments(must have a current soil test), and make recommendations of crop rotation, planting schedule, varieties, and succession planting. I will follow up with a written summary of my recommendations.

OSF CSA members get $100 discount towards on-site garden consultation PLUS $25 credit at the Plant Sale!
