Does anyone remeber summer? Remember what it felt like to lay your hands on warm soil and tend your vegatable and perennial gardens? Well, never fear, the Kilbourn Park Organic Greenhouse Winter Garden Workshop Series is here!
We can’t wait to see you!
Your plants are only as healthy and nutritious as your soil is! In this workshop we will review soil biology and you will learn simple techniques on how to access your soil’s health and the quality of your compost.You will develop a seasonal program of nourishing your gardens’ soil for health and resilience. Please bring a sandwich bag from your compost pile (indoor or outdoor) to class and a printed picture of your garden during the last growing season.
This workshop has limited enrollment, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot!
Learn what common ailments can be treated using common kitchen spices, wild plants you can find in your yard, and herbs and vegetables from your CSA box, farmer’s market or garden plot! Learn what it is to have food be your medicine, and learn about both treatments and prevention. Let us know you’ll be coming or just show up!

with Nancy Benjamin
Craving unique vegetables? Want those old fashioned French marigolds? Like the delicate herb chervil? Want to show your children the wonders of plants? Sometimes, to get the plants you want–when you want them–you just have to grow them yourself. Master Gardener and organic advocate Nancy Benjamin will show you the basics of seed starting. Discover seed sources, trays, growing mediums, lights as well as germination tips and times for a whole variety of vegetables and flowers. Let us know you’ll be coming or just show up!
If you are interested in any of these workshops or if you have any questions please email email@example.com to let us know you’ll be coming.
Our 2nd annual fundraiser, Evening at the Garden, is this August and we hope you will join us for a lovely evening of delicious food and beverages, live music and a silent auction.
We are raising money this year to renovate the south wall of the greenhouse, something that will help raise healthier seedlings for our plant sale and begin the process of letting much needed light into the greenhouse!
