Grow Your Own Garlic - Messalonskee
with Amy Leblanc
Are you interested in learning how to grow garlic? Join us for this Saturday Morning Workshop on growing garlic successfully and with the least fuss. We will view the instructor’s slides which will take about an hour. We will discuss garden preparation and planting, good growing techniques, weed control, troubleshooting, harvesting and curing, AND best of all, storing for fresh use all winter and into the spring. We will also include recipes for using and preserving all the parts of the plant. Then we will head out to the Messalonskee's High School’s Raised Beds to put our hands to work planting. Bring gardening gloves and small garden hand tools if you have them, sunscreen and/or hat might be nice too. Great for first-time garlic growers and the more experienced people as well. A starter package of 10 garlic cloves will be provided and you are welcome to order more.
