Do you have poor soil? Bad drainage? Limited space? Aching knees or back? Raised beds may help you solve these common problems. This program covers different types, materials, and uses of raised beds. The presenters will discuss locations—such as yard, deck, or balcony—and will provide tips on how to build a raised bed. You will learn about different soils and fertilizers to use and how to prepare your beds for reuse the next year.
Part of this program will be outdoors. Please dress accordingly. If you have difficulty standing for 20 to 30 minutes, consider bringing a folding chair or stool.
The seminar is free but registration is necessary. Please register by calling 828-255-5522.
