Raised Gardening Seminar May 5

Posted on by

Take your garden to new heights and join us for a seminar on Raised Gardening on Saturday, May 5  at 10 am.

Benefits of raised garden beds include easier planting (as our local soil tends to be hard & rocky). You can also strategically place your raised garden in an area that gets ideal sunlight for your plants and easily adjust soil adding organic matter for nutrient hungry plants like veggies.

Plus it’s easier to keep the critters out!

We’ll have lots of specials for seminar participants, including:

  • Buy 2, get 1 free steer manure
  • $2 off Warner’s Supreme Planting Mix, and
  • $2 off chicken manure.

So learn all about raised garden beds and let’s get planting!
