Workshop on early season gardening at Hungry Mother

Hungry Mother Organics will host a Spring Gardener Workshop, 10-11:30 a.m. today at the garden center at 3190 Highway 395, in north Douglas County, across from Silver City RV and next to Full Circle Compost.

It's a bit too early to start growing plants but hard to stay out of the garden. This workshop will help bridge the season, by covering seed starting, frost protection, soil prep, raised-bed building, and more to make an early-bird garden as productive as possible.

Just bring yourself, a water bottle, snack, and dress appropriately for outdoor activity.
