New Raised Bed Gardening Publication Available

Do you have an interest in raised bed gardening? If so, your local Agriculture and Natural Resources professionals in Greene County have a newly published raised bed publication that could help you!

Gardening generally is a challenging and rewarding activity. In addition to being a source of food, gardening provides the opportunity for socializing, physical activity, even quiet introspection. Raised bed gardening has all those benefits and is a practical and fun way to overcome the limitations of traditional in-ground gardening.  With A Complete Approach to Raised Bed Gardening, beginning gardeners learn about location, site prep, materials, soil, planting, irrigation, and avoiding freeze damage. The handy section on managing pests—insects, diseases, and weeds–includes descriptions, images, and strategies for mitigation. Get growing today! View the publication here.
