Master Gardeners Hosting Veggie Gardening ClinicV

The Virginia Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners of Arlington/Alexandria will present a program called Fall and Winter Vegetable Gardening: Extending Your Harvest on Aug. 25 from 7 – 8:30 p.m. at Fairlington Community Center, located at 3308 Stafford St., Arlington. Another session of the same program will be presented on Aug. 29 from 10:30 a.m. – noon at the same location.

Master Gardeners will cover what and when to plant and present simple tips for success in growing cool-season greens like kale, collards, bok choy and a wide variety of lettuces. They will share inexpensive techniques to extend the harvest even into the dead of winter. They will also cover end-of-season clean-up, putting the garden to bed and tool care to give the gardener a head start for next spring.
