Raised Bed Gardens – The Why and How

May 3, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

Are you interested in creating raised bed gardens but don’t know where to start? Join Sean O’Brien, UNH Extension’s Home Horticulture Assistant Program Manager, for a two-part workshop, including an introduction to the benefits of raised bed gardens and an in-person, hands-on session to build wooden raised bed gardens. You’ll go away with skills and knowledge about location, material selection, construction methods, and how to grow various plants in raised beds.

Part 1

The first part of the workshop will be virtual, and is available at no cost.  There is no registration limit for the webinar, but you must sign up by May 1st.  Participation in the virtual introduction session is required in order to attend the second session.

Part 2

The in-person, hands-on portion has a limited capacity of 20 participants. If you are not able to attend the required webinar live, you must still register for Part 1 and view the recorded presentation before you arrive to the workshop. The outdoor workshop will take place outdoors, rain or shine.  Dress for the weather, with waterproof footwear recommended for primarily grassy, flat but uneven terrain.

$10 for NH Audubon members and UNH Ext Master Gardeners
$15 for non-members


Registration Required by May 1, 2023

For accessibility requests, please contact Massabesic Center Director, Kimmie Whiteman, at kwhiteman@nhaudubon.org.

This program is brought to you through an ongoing partnership between New Hampshire Audubon and University of New Hampshire Extension’s Master Gardener Program. The Demonstration Gardens at NH Audubon’s Massabesic Center provide a place for sharing best practices in eco-friendly home and community gardening, to benefit human health and well-being, and wildlife habitat.
