      Successful Gardens in Small Spaces Workshop

      Warm weather is just around the corner, and soon it will be time to start planting fruits and vegetables. If you would like to grow fresh produce at home, but aren’t sure if you have enough room for planting, join the Master Gardeners of Middlesex County for an upcoming workshop titled, Successful Gardens in Small Spaces.
      This FREE workshop is scheduled for Saturday, April 22 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, at the EARTH Center located in Davidson’s Mill Pond Park at 42 Riva Ave, South Brunswick.
      The workshop will explore square foot gardening, a type of gardening that concentrates on a small, clearly defined area and incorporates the use of compost. Advocates say this method works great for beginning gardeners or those with disabilities, and can help in areas with poor soil. Container gardening will also be discussed. This technique can often give urban gardeners a way to safely and productively grow their favorite crops.
      “You don’t need acres of land to grow your own fruits and vegetables,” said Freeholder Kenneth Armwood, Chair of the County’s Business Development and Education Committee. “Even if you’re not an experienced gardener, this workshop will help you learn how you can have a beautiful garden regardless of the size of your property.”
      “Learning how to grow your own vegetables can save money, is healthier and can be a great hobby to enjoy outdoors,” said Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios. “I encourage individuals and families to come to this workshop.”
      To register for this workshop, please call 732-398-5262 by April 19, or e-mail Carol.richiusa@co.middlesex.nj.us.
