FREE Cover Crops for Gardeners
On Wednesday, September 16th during the Guernsey County fair, the Soil & Water office will host a free educational program on cover crops for gardeners. Anne Brandt from Walnut Creek Seeds in Carroll, OH will tell how to put your garden to bed for the season and explain all the benefits to using cover crops to do this.
There will also be a demonstration on straw bale gardening by the Master Gardeners.
And the best part? FREE FOOD! Come sample the bounty of Guernsey county gardens. The Master Gardeners will turn master chefs to tempt you with yummy dishes straight from the garden.
The program is Wednesday morning at the new Soil & Water office, which is at the top of the hill on the left as you come in the main gates of the fairgrounds. The program begins at 10:30AM. There will be door prizes. Come join us, and take a moment to sit down in the air conditioning, sample some veggie dishes, and get a cool drink of water while you learn how to improve your soil for gardening.
