Saturday Seminar presents:
Gardening with EarthBoxes®
This is a talk by Debbie Green, an Extension Master Gardener Volunteer and experienced Earthbox® user. Debbie covers planning, planting, watering and other maintenance, harvesting, overwintering, and long-term strategies for using these types of growing systems. If you crave growing your own veggies, herbs, or flowers, but limited space, poor growing conditions, contaminated soils, or past failures with container gardening have discouraged you, learn how to succeed with EarthBoxes®.
Although Extension Master Gardener volunteers don’t endorse commercial products, these boxes are the result of research to develop a growing system that manages water and nutrients for optimal plant growth.
