Companion Planting Workshop Planned at SACG

You  -- and your friends and co-gardeners -- are cordially invited to a FREE workshop being held at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 8  at the Stoddart Avenue Community Garden by Franklin Park Conservatory on companion planting.  FPC Educational Coordinator, Barb Arnold, will be discussing the what and how-to's of companion planting. Learn about attractors, distracters and shared space usage.  In other words, what plants should you plant next to each other to deter bad bugs and attract good bugs.   For instance, basil is good to plant next to tomatoes, dill is good next to cabbage, but you should not plant beans and onions or garlic together, etc.

Barb will have handouts, etc.

The Stoddart Avenue Community Garden is located at 445 Stoddart Avenue (1/4 block north of East Main Street and 3/4 blocks south of Bryden) between Fairwood and Kelton Avenues.  

Although we have a couple of benches, you might want to bring a folding chair. 

Refreshments will be served.  RSVPs are appreciated, but not necessary.

As an aside, the SACG strawberries are beginning to ripen and lots of children stopped by on Wednesday to begin harvesting themJ
