“Spring into Action” Farm to Table Dinner
Iron Chef style fundraiser to benefit The Senior Connection.
For reservations: Call 208.721.3114.
You don’t need a greenhouse to grow your own fresh, organic produce. With carefully selected plantings and simple to construct cold frames and low tunnels, your garden can be cranking out premium greens long before your neighbors even drag out their hose. Instructor James Loomis will also arm you with tools you need to break the boom and bust garden cycle; no more will you plant everything all at once, wait two months, then struggle with an avalanche of abundance. With good design, your garden can produce steadily twelve months a year!
With an eye towards the summer garden, we’ll cover the various techniques for starting plants from seeds. By growing your own starts, you’ll have access to more variety and stronger, more robust plants than you find at your local big box store or nursery, not to mention you might even save enough money for this workshop to pay for itself!
Of course, all of this great knowledge will be accompanied by fantastic locally sourced meals and hot soaks in our geothermal pool.
Topics will include: Season Extension, Cold frame Design & Building, Decoding the Language of Seed Catalogs, Vegetable Selection, Garden Planning, Succession Planting, Plant Starting, Building your own Soil Mixes
Workshop will start on Friday at 4pm with a presentation and a great dinner, Saturday from 9am to 6pm and Sunday from 9am to 4pm. We will serve a light breakfast and a hearty lunch plus snacks on Saturday and Sunday.
