Event Description

Extending the Growing Season - A Green City Growers Workshop, October 8, 6:30-8 pm
600 Windsor Pl, Somerville, MA 02143

The growing season in New England is short. In Boston, we typically grow from the beginning of April to the end of October (last frost to first frost). Anything that can prolong our growing season, even for a few weeks, becomes very valuable.

Join Green City Growers Director of Operations Erik Sol for this intensive workshop, which covers topics including types of season extenders and what you can grow in the late fall and early spring. Workshop includes a hands-on lesson in how to construct a loop house.

Fee: $40 for pre-registration, $45 at the door
