The South Philly Food Co-op’s Container Garden Workshop
Sunday, May 6, 2pm to 4pm
Do you want to try your hand at growing plants but donít have lots of space? Think you need a yard or raised bed to grow food?
Join Sarah DeGiorgis, who has been blogging for over a year at SouthPhillyFoodCoop.org about growing in containers, as she shows you what type of containers to use, what plants to choose and information about sun and watering. They’ll also cover transplantation and maintenance of your new container garden. They’ll have soil, seeds and tools and attendees are encouraged to bring their own containers. They don’t have to be traditional pots! Anything that can hold soil and water, has drainage holes in the bottom and is made of something non-porous is just fine. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
$5 suggested donation will go directly to the Co-op.
