Desert Institute of Gardening: Fall Vegetable Gardening

You ​can ​grow ​fresh ​produce ​in ​your ​garden ​in ​the ​low ​desert ​year-round.

​In ​fact, ​the ​cool ​season ​is ​one ​of ​our ​best ​growing ​times. ​The ​Fall ​Vegetable ​Gardening ​class, ​taught ​by ​Master ​Gardener ​Pam ​Perry, ​will ​demonstrate ​the ​advanced ​techniques ​of ​how ​to ​set ​up ​your ​plot, ​get ​the ​best ​soil ​and ​watering ​systems, ​and ​how ​to ​cultivate ​your ​own ​vegetables ​for ​the ​season. ​This ​class ​takes ​you ​beyond ​the ​basics ​taught ​in ​our ​Intro ​to ​Vegetable ​Gardening ​class ​last ​week.

Learning ​Objectives: ​ ​
Ensure ​your ​vegetable ​garden ​has ​what ​it ​takes ​to ​produce ​loads ​of ​fresh ​produce ​each ​season ​by ​learning ​how ​to:
1. Select ​the ​best ​location ​for ​your ​veggie ​garden
2. Enrich ​the ​soil ​foundation ​for ​healthy ​plants ​
3. Feed/fertilize ​your ​garden
4. Irrigate, ​how ​much ​and ​how ​often
5. Select ​and ​plant ​the ​best ​varieties ​for ​the ​desert
