Franklin Park Conservatory is holding some free gardening workshops at the Stoddart Avenue Community Garden over the next four weeks:

  • Extending the Season

    Wednesday, August 25th 6:30pm-8:30pm

    Come learn how to extend your growing season into the cooler autumn months! Learn about planting second season crops and utilizing cold frames, etc. This will involve watching both greens and root crops being planted at the SACG.


  • Garden Scavenger Hunt

    Wednesday, September 1st 6:30pm-8:30pm

    In this class, families will search the garden for what belongs and what doesn't. Along the way, we will discover how new and familiar vegetables grow.


  • Nutrition in the Garden

    Wednesday, September 8th 6:30pm-8:30pm

    Learn more about the benefits of eating fresh, local fruits and veggies.


  • End of Season Gleaning and Cleaning

    September 15th 6:30pm-8:30pm

    We will explore ways to harvest and store garden produce so that we can enjoy the fruits of summer long after the killer frost.


The Workshops are FREE and open to the public. Bring a friend.
