Starting from Scratch: DIY Garden Stuff @ Food Action offices
Mar 26 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

DIY Folks, we couldn’t help but notice a lot of interest in our posts about raised beds & other building projects!

If you are creating new raised beds or other garden infrastructure this year, we’ll be holding a very informal Q&A session on building a new garden. You ask, we’ll try our best to answer. We’ve got ideas, plans, and images to share as we talk about your project. We can also help with season extension, building from recycled materials, how to make things last longer, and more.

Please PM or email us to register as we only have capacity for 8-10 people at a time. Thanks!!
