Give your garden the best possible start in 2016! Learn what to do to clean up your garden and prepare it for the next season so that you can hit the ground running in the spring.

You’ll learn techniques for eliminating weeds, and for reducing pest and disease pressure in your garden beds. We’ll look at how to mulch your garden, make effective use of fallen leaves and to incorporate soil amendments that will improve your soil quality.

Learn what should be pruned back or dug out, and which plants can be protected through the winter for a head start in the spring.

Participants will leave with resources.
