Forsyth County Center RESCHEDULED - Cover Crops in the Garden, From Seed to Soil Sat Apr 30, 2016 Today 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM Where:
NC Cooperative Extension Mt Tabor UMC Church Garden (3543 Robinhood Rd)
— 7 hours away

This program has been rescheduled to April 23rd from 3pm - 5pm.

We have RESCHEDULED the upcoming Sustainable Growing Series workshop, "Cover Crops in the Garden," for next weekend (EARLIER than the original date of April 30). It will now be Saturday, April 23 from 3 pm - 5 pm, and will still be at the at Mt. Tabor UMC Church Garden (3543 Robinhood Rd.). Note the time change as well -- we will hold the workshop in the afternoon since many community gardens already have workdays scheduled for Saturday morning.

Due to the unusually warm spring, the over-wintering cover crops have matured more quickly than expected, and are already flowering at the host garden! Therefore, they must be cut down next weekend before they go to seed. Moving up the workshop will allow you to get hands-on experience cutting down the cover crops and preparing the plots for summer vegetables.

You can still sign up to attend at: http://tinyurl.com/FCG-CovCropReg2016. The revised workshop info is below; please share with other gardeners!

Thank you for your understanding and we hope you can attend!
