One of the services provided as part of the partnership between the Americana Community Garden and the Refugee Agricultural Partnership Program is technical assistance for our gardeners through an ongoing series of community workshops, held every other Wednesday from 4-6pm
Because most of our international gardeners are experienced at growing food in climate zones different than Kentucky's, our workshops focus on topics such as local planting schedules, common garden pests, organic gardening, composting, and other subject of use to Kentucky growers.
On March 7th, with the help of the Jefferson County Extension Service (special thanks to Wayne Long and Sarah Stolz), Robbie and Sarah demonstrated how to construct low tunnels to keep frost from killing your plants.
These workshops are open to the public and we encourage you to join us. Keep up to date on ACC Community Garden events through the blog or at Americana's Facebook page or Twitter feed.
