Mushroom Cultivation

Our workshop on mushroom log cultivation, taught by Steve Conaway at the Greenwich Land Trust, was a great time on a rainy winter afternoon.

New class: The Edible Summer Garden

The Edible Summer Garden

The tasty world of edible gardening!
Greenwich Community Gardens’ founder and Advanced Master Gardener, Patty Sechi, will continue to guide you “down the garden path” to your own bountiful summer vegetable garden. Patty will go over garden basics for those who missed the spring class and talk about what and how to plant as warm weather approaches. She’ll also cover bugs, weeds to look out for, and succession and companion planting. Mindful, organic and water-conscious gardening practices will be discussed, as well as a quick primer on composting. Class includes Q&A and a tour of the garden.
