Organic Gardening talks

So many exciting things to share today! Is there no better way to get through the month of February but to think of gardening, seeds and spring? Even more exciting is that organic gardening is becoming mainstream!

Garden Gate Nursery in Hartland will be hosting a series of presentations on organic gardening. on Tuesday The first will feature Bob Boomsma from Olds Seed Company in Madison who will present on "Organic Seeds". Here is a description of his talk:

"What makes seed organic? That means they don't have chemicals on them, right? Do they grow better? Are they harder to grow? ... Environmentally conscious gardeners recognize that organic practices are as good for the earth on faraway farm fields where seeds are produced, as they are in their home gardens."

The upcoming talks are:

Pesticides and Herbicides
Soil Ammendments and Compost
Landscape Workshop | low maintenance plant material
Landscape Workshop | native plants vs invasive plants

It looks like pre-registration is required. For more info:
