Extending the Gardening Season Workshop

September 10, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

Are you sad to see the summer end with the last of your vegetable garden bounty? Fear not! Fall can also be a great time to keep your gardens in production by extending the growing season. Whether you have already planted for this fall or want to plan for the next, this workshop will cover what vegetables grow best in the fall, how to protect your crops from frosts and freezes, and how overwintering certain crops can take your growing season even further.

This workshop will include indoor and outdoor components and some hands-on planting and use of various row cover, weather permitting. Dress for a short walk over grassy, flat, but uneven terrain. Bring garden gloves if you have them.

As a bonus, check out our Annual Fall Plant Sale before or after the workshop!

Presenter: Steph Sosinski is a Home Horticulture Program Manager with UNH Extension.
