Groton Local will pull together some of the area’s most experienced food gardeners for an educational presentation on Thursday, May 17, 7 pm at Nashua River Watershed Association headquarters, 592 Main Street (Route 119), Groton.

The panel will include Jane Cookman Metzger, hoop house experimenter and newly-certified Permaculturist; Roger Temple, inspirational gardener and gardening mentor; Haynes Turkle, voluntary manager of Groton Local’s former community garden; Priscilla Williams, proprietor of Pumpkin Brook Organic Gardening in Townsend.

After short presentations about their own gardening goals and methods, they will answer audience questions. Raised beds? Mulch? Compost? Hoop houses? Cold frames? Crop rotation? Companion plantings? Managing pests?

These are just some of the topics that may arise during the evening’s seminar. One thing gardeners know is that they learn by exchanging ideas, successes, and failures with other gardeners.

This is your opportunity to do just that — please join us on May 17! Ask your questions and share your stories.
