First Day of Spring Workshop in the Grow City Teaching Garden

March 19 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

Tuesday, March 19 will be the First Day of Spring and the first Hands-on-Workshop-in-the-Garden at
the Grow City Teaching Garden, for 2024! Come anytime between 6:00 pm Eastern to dark to learn
while helping with garden work. We will be planting early spring crops such as potatoes, peas, onions,
carrots, radishes and lettuce, among other activities. Learn the how and why of what’s going on in the
Grow City garden and plans for the 2024 gardening season, then apply what you learn to your own
garden. Welcome Spring by helping to get things started!
