Two Garden Walk and Talk events are coming up to discuss a variety of vegetable gardening topics.
The first Walk and Talk will be held at the garden of James Quinn, MU Extension regional horticulture specialist. James will give us a tour of his garden and discuss different Raised Bed and Intensive Gardening Techniques, which are ideal for community gardens. He grows a wide variety of vegetables and fruit and will also be able to talk about various pest and disease issues.
Thursday, June 28, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
