Vegetable Garden Success: Monthly Veg Club Zoom Classes

Want more success in your vegetable garden? Want to know what long-time growers know? How about local resources? You want Veg Club!

This series of classes covers everything from beginner basics to specialized local resources and techniques for experienced growers. Each month, long-time home gardening geek Carol Appenzeller, who describes herself as someone who thinks about growing food more than anyone probably should, will cover a different topic to lead you through seasonally appropriate tasks, skills, and discussions. Come share your solutions, too. It’s on Zoom, so it’s easy to attend. You can watch previous sessions on the Bainbridge Prepares YouTube channel, linked below. Let’s get together, gardeners!

In our May session we’ll learn about:

  • Common Northwest diseases and pests and how to thwart them
  • Which insects and other organisms can actually help you solve pest problems
  • How to attract these creatures to work for you while making your garden more beautiful

Join us via Zoom from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, May 10  and  the second Tuesday of every month at
