Springtime Tips and Heirloom Seeds
January 29, 2013
For this program, Master Gardener Mike Rushing will deliver his “gearing up for spring” presentation titled "Mike’s Springtime Tips." Dr. Rushing will focus on what gardeners should be planning and preparing during the colder months of the year in order to have their garden plot ready for planting come spring.
We will also have Jere Gettle—the founder of Baker Creek Seed Co. and a man once described by the New York Times as "the Indiana Jones of seeds"—appearing live via Skype to tell us about why growing heirloom fruits and vegetables is vital to our own health as well as the health of our communities. Mr. Getttle will also tell us about some of his adventures while travelling around the world to find heirloom seeds for his thriving business.
