Join us on Thursday, March 9th at 6:00 p.m. via Zoom for the next installment of our Conservation Talk Series! We will be joined by Iris Mayes, small farm and horticulture educator for UI Extension, Latah County.
Iris will cover the various aspects of growing vegetables and flowers in containers. This presentation will discuss how to manage soil to maximize yield, explore which species do best in containers, and provide some ideas for managing water.
Twenty-five starter container gardening kits will be distributed free of charge to the first workshop participants to sign up. Each kit will include a growing pot, vegetable seeds, and potting mix. You must indicate on this registration form whether you are interested in a kit. Those who qualify for a kit will be contacted after the workshop about picking up their kit from the Palouse CD office in Pullman. You must attend the workshop to qualify. One kit per household. (PLEASE NOTE: If you received a kit through our irrigation workshop, other participants will be prioritized to receive a kit first.)
Unable to join us for this presentation? The recording will be posted here the next day.
