Get ready for spring gardening

The Dryden Community Center Cafe will be hosting classes on gardening presented by the co-founder of the Dryden Community Garden:

Join us for the first of a new series of free classes at Dryden Community Center Cafe: Grow Your Own. A fresh topic on the third Tuesday of every month 5:30 - 6:30. Intended to be both a class and a discussion group, led by Kerra Quinn (Dryden Community Garden co-founder and Garden Question Answerer At-large), all levels of know-how are asked to attend; meaning - don't just come to learn, if you have garden knowledge please come to share. Bring your favorite seed catalogs.

January's topic:

Seed Selection or
Will I actually eat a rutabaga if I grow them? or
How to not produce more zucchini than anyone really needs.

  • Choose your vegetables!
  • Deciding that you want to grow your own food and need to have a garden is easy.
  • Deciding what to grow and how much seed you'll need to buy and when and where and how to start planting can be daunting.
  • A gardener's all time favorite January event - seed catalog perusal.

There will be nice pots of herbal teas from locally harvested plants and homegrown mint. Children are welcome. Be prepared to take notes.
