Join us to learn some tips and techniques of cold weather gardening to make the fullest use of your space and time. The ideas, concepts and tools are intended to help the home or market gardener start vegetable growing earlier in the spring, extend the harvest later into the fall, and even overwinter some plants for a real early start. May include a panel discussion with some local people making use of high tunnels in the area.
