Three-part class to help garden novices
SYCAMORE – Starting a vegetable garden can be a very confusing and intimidating process if it’s something you’ve never done before. University of Illinois Extension is offering a series of programs to help beginners in vegetable gardening.
The Beginning Vegetable Gardening series will provide basic information on starting a vegetable garden in a backyard or at a community or school garden plot. The series will start this fall with programs on site selection, building raised beds, cool season crops, extending the growing season and garden planning. Next spring, the series will continue with a variety of other basic programs like seed starting, warm season crops, planting and garden care, vegetable pests and disease management.
The first program of the series, Site Selection and Raised Beds, will be offered at the DeKalb County Extension office, 1350 W. Prairie Drive in Sycamore, from 3 to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2.
