Sessions help diversify your garden, diet


Purdue Extension Montgomery County will offer a three-session class series, Diversifying your Garden and Diet, on April 5, 12 and 19. The sessions will take place 5:30-7 p.m. on the fourth floor of the Fusion 54 building, 101 W. Main St., Crawfordsville.

Instead of only growing the usual staple crops, such as tomatoes, cucumbers and corn, think outside the proverbial gardening box. A diversified garden is loaded with as many varieties as the gardener can manage in order to provide a diversified offering of produce. A diversified garden extends to container gardening and fall gardens as well.

Organizers will answer the questions, how do I get started? Which vegetables and fruit should I choose? How big does my garden need to be? If I plant a new food who will eat it? Don’t worry we will be demonstrating (and tasting) how to prepare the new and diverse produce from your garden.

To register, call 765-364-6363. Food and seeds will be provided.
