CSA Garden Outreach Program in Green Fire Times

Photo by CSA Member Tom Engel

In 2009 and 2010, Beneficial Farms CSA has focused time in the spring and summer to community and local gardeners.  We are in the Green Fire Times this month describing the program and showing the May events in their calendar section.  Click here to see the article online, page 26.

This year, Steve has provided community gardens with four garden classes on preparing your soil and planning your garden space.  May brings three more classes and see the schedule below.  CSA members can attend these events free of charge so we encourage you to sign-up and there are RSVP instructions for each site.

The May classes are all focused on planting warm weather vegetables.  The frost date will have passed by the class time so you should be ready to plant after attending the class.  Steve always leaves time for asking questions as well.

Let me know if you have questions about gardening or community gardening.
