Good morning, friends!! I am so excited to finally announce some of the details for this year's Spring gardening workshop! After last year's summer workshop in our backyard garden, my husband and I started dreaming up ideas for a new one and the time is finally here!
For those new around here, you can read how we got started doing gardening workshops here as well as get a glimpse of why we love to garden so much.
Some of the details are similar to last year but we've added some exciting new topics and lunch will actually be harvested from our garden (God willing the seeds we planted actually grow) - you guys will do the picking! Then we'll get together to clean, prepare and make lunch together before a quick q&a time.
Here are the quick facts of what to expect:
REGISTRATION OPENS AT 8AM CST.
Saturday, April 16th, 2016
Zellers Backyard - Tulsa, OK
9am-1pm (or as long as you want to hang out)
donuts + coffee, snacks and lunch will be provided
We are so excited to invite you to join us for a relaxed, hands-on experience as we discuss some of our favorite gardening techniques, show you real-life examples in our garden, talk about different methods of growing food as well as make new friends and above all else, have a great time! We'll wrap up the workshop with a little q&a session and picnic - so bring your garden layout or any questions you want answered.
Some topics we'll address:
- soil basics
- container gardening
- companion planting
- permaculture principles
- natural fertilizers and insect repellents
- preserving your harvest
- and more!
We'll start the day with donuts and of course coffee. For lunch, we will go into the garden and harvest a mix of fresh greens, onions and radishes to make our own salads along with some of Lesley's favorite dressing recipes.
Each guest will go home with confidence to start your own garden, some fun goodies, a set of companion planning cards, some of my favorite recipes using garden produce and gardening tips - plus more surprises I can't wait to share!

I hope to see you here! Registration is now live and seats are limited!
