Professional Development – Back to School Gardening, Part 1

July 10, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

$10.00 – $15.00


Join Richard Hodges from ReTreeUs for a two-part workshop to discover a novel way to grow schoolyard gardens. In these workshops, we’ll talk about sheet mulching techniques, succession planting, and building organic matter with an easy-to-do method. You’ll also learn the basic considerations and steps for planning and starting a schoolyard vegetable garden.

In Part 1 of the workshop, we’ll get hands-on (virtually) with the “sheet mulching” practice we utilize in school gardens in the spring to prevent weeds and build soil. We will learn about direct-sowing crops that grow well over the summer with minimal maintenance while discussing best practices for school gardens.

After the workshop, we’ll provide information for you to tour the successful Teaching and Demonstration Garden, which is maintained through a partnership between NH Audubon and UNH-Extension, and provides the public with research-based, sustainable gardening information and skills that benefit our environment for wildlife and for people.

$10 for NH Audubon members 
$15 for non-members (Join or renew your membership today! Not sure of your membership status? Email our member services department or call (603) 224-9909 x310.)
