Are you a beginner to vegetable gardening or a gardener who wants to learn more? Seed to Supper is a series of educational presentations about vegetable gardening being offered by the Mahaska County Master Gardeners, free and open to the public. Due to COVID restrictions, it will be offered at 6 pm by zoom, with recordings available after the event.
The ISU Extension and Outreach publications covering the basic vegetable gardening topics will give the gardener the information needed to grow a portion of their own food on a limited budget. Participants are not required to attend/watch all four sessions.
Dates and topics for Mahaska County’s Seed to Supper are:
- February 4 Planning your vegetable garden
- February 25 Healthy Soil (Compost & Mulch)
- March 18 Planting and Caring for your garden (including container gardening)
- April 8 Caring and Harvesting your garden (including recipes)
To register for the zoom call Mahaska County Extension Office 641-673-5841 or email Suzette Striegel (email@example.com) by Noon the day before. Those who register will receive a zoom link and handouts.
