Join long-time farmer, and soil advocate Pooh Sprague, this coming Sunday, April 29th!
This workshop is perfect for the novice gardener looking to turn their thumb a touch more green as well as the veteran homesteader who might be having trouble with a certain crop. Flower lovers, this class is class is geared for you as well! Bottomline, come one! Come all!
Pooh will go over the basics of soil prep, sampling and testing as well as fertility and how it works into the soil solution.
Pooh and Anne Sprague have been growing strawberries along the Connecticut River Valley for the past 41 years. Join Pooh tomorrow at the Farmstand at noon for words from a long time sage berry grower on the trials and errors and successes of growing our very favorite crop, strawberries.
On top of the knowledge you will gain from Pooh, and the answers to your growing questions, there will also be a host of strawberry themed food made from our own farmstand kitchen.
