Fall Workshops 2013!



Stop in to Shadyside Nursery, or e-mail us at shadysideworms@gmail.com, to register for a Fall Planting/Planning workshop! There will be two workshops in September:

Workshop#1– Learn how to design a successful cold frame for the Western Pennsylvania climate zone, and plant some fall crops as well! We will have some starters for you if you want to get some gardening in before winter. We will also teach you about composting, from food to lawn scraps, and how to prepare your garden for the next season. At the end of the workshop, we will be breaking out the calenders and brainstorming to help you create your own personal gardening calender for the year so you’ll be ready to grow organic foods and decorative plants from seed to harvest.

Saturday Sept. 7th     3:00pm – 4:30pm

Saturday Sept. 14th   3:00pm – 4:30pm    

Workshop #2– Improve your gardening skills by learning how to build a raised bed and incorporate a variety of techniques in square foot design. Gardening in an urban area often requires some good planning depending on what crops you’re growing. As well, we will be discussing what we call “winter hardy” crops. These are things like garlic, horseradish, onions, and other crops that you plant in the fall to harvest the following year. We are going to have some beautiful heirloom garlic, and some cuts of horseradish for you. We will be teaching you some basics in soil science in this workshop, so you will know how and why to test your soil and maintain a healthy organic garden. At the end of the workshop we will be breaking out the calenders and brainstorming with you on how to create your personal gardening calender for the year so you’ll always be a step ahead.

Saturday Sept. 21st    3:00pm – 4:30pm

Saturday Sept. 28th    3:00pm – 4:30pm

Workshops are $10 per person, $15 if you are registered for both. Please e-mail or call us to register, or go to Shadyside Nursery @ 510 Maryland Ave. next to Harris Grill. We will be e-mailing the workshop agendas after you register. Please bring your payment to the workshop you attend.
