Organic Gardening WorkshopAnchor
Wednesday, April 22

​Celebrate Earth Day by learning organic gardening during our workshop with Dr. Gene Bazan of Neo-Terra. Learn about organic vegetable and fruit production with principles and tips that are useful to beginning and intermediate organic gardeners. It’s perfect for conventional gardeners who are thinking about converting to organic and want to learn how. The evening workshop will include a virtual tour, and in the late spring, Gene and his wife Tania will host a real tour for attendees at their home in Lemont, where they grow 95% of their vegetables year-round and 60% of their fruit (the home garden visit dates will be announced at the workshop).​
