Class: Recording the Garden

Thu, January 27, 2022 @ 12:30 pm EST - 2:00 pm EST

Long-term gardening is easier when there’s a sense of continuity. Individual gardeners and community gardening teams can greatly benefit from record-keeping to maintain consistency and direction over time. In this webinar, we discuss strategies to track what is planted in the garden and where, where plants came from, how well plantings survive over time, which gardening practices work best for a given location, and basic phrenology concepts to help track the timing of plants’ life history events. Participants will also learn how to use garden records to track gardening experiments whose results can help inform future decisions about planting and maintenance.

Class Fee: $18 (Members)/$23 (Nonmembers)
