Are you having struggles growing a garden in your backyard? Do you hate to fight the weeds? No worries, there’s another way to grow your vegetables or improve your flowerbed, without weeds. Straw bale gardening allows you to plant earlier in the growing season and provide new soil for your plants each year. That can help avoid some fungus and blight problems for plants like tomatoes. Straw bales can be less expensive than potting soil and more fertile than some garden soil. It allows you to garden when soil may be rocky or sandy. Julie Toman of the Earth Ministry Team will share tricks, tips, and how-tos to be successful with the straw bales. Information sheets are provided to help with your new gardening adventure.
The class is Saturday, April 17th at 1:00 pm and will be held outdoors at Julie Toman’s house in Waukesha. Social distancing and masks are required. For questions or to register, contact Julie Toman.
Bonus! Julie has perennials that need dividing – If you have a need for some, bring containers to take some home for your garden.
