To Do: Fall and Winter Vegetable Gardening Class

So you can eat fresh all year round.

I’m just going to go ahead and state the unfortunate reality we’re all trying to avoid: Summer is winding down, people. And with it, we lose one of the season’s most glorious gifts: the deliciously ripe, fresh fruits and veggies we’ve been enjoying for the past three months.

But there may be some hope in maintaining our fresh-food fix. The Delaware Center for Horticulture is hosting a Fall and Winter Vegetable Gardening Class on August 22nd, because August can be a great month to plant veggies, too.

The class, taught by DCH’s urban farm expert, Alice Davis, and seasoned vegetable gardener and blogger, George Davis, will explore ways to extend your own growing season later into the fall and winter months. So, when you’re bundled up and raking leaves after the turn of the season, you’ll be able to hang on to at least one summer custom that will bring you back to those much-missed warmer months.

$10 for members, $15 for nonmembers, Wednesday, August 22 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., The Delaware Center for Horticulture, 1810 N. Dupont Street, Wilmington.
