Growing Corn: As Fresh As It Gets

June 8 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm EDT

The arrival of local sweet corn in the summer is an event many look forward to. Why not grow your own for even more freshness and variety? This in-person workshop will explore selecting varieties, determining where and how to plant and maintain a healthy crop and how to address pests and problems. As a bonus, we’ll also discuss growing and processing “dry” corn for cornmeal, flour and popcorn.

The workshop will take place primarily indoors, rain or shine. Weather permitting we’ll have a hands-on planting opportunity in the gardens directly behind the center.  Dress for a short walk over grassy, flat, but uneven terrain.

Presenter: Will Lowenthal is a Extension Master Gardener Volunteer with extensive knowledge of various vegetable gardening practices.
