Cold Frame Gardening
Thursday 14 September 2017, 07:00pm - 08:30pm

When: Thursday September 14, 2017 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM

Where: The Gardens at Elm Bank - Parkman Room

Cold frames and hoop houses are great season extenders, allowing vegetables to be planted 2-4 weeks earlier than unprotected plants. They also play a key role in the transition of seedlings of all kinds from the sheltered windowsill/greenhouse environment to the outdoors. Gretel Anspach will show you how, where and when to use these interesting tools in your own garden.

Gretel Anspach is a Lifetime Master Gardener with the Massachusetts Master Gardener Association, a Trustee of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, and a recently-retired systems engineer for Raytheon. Gretel helped to establish and maintain two food production gardens that have provided fresh produce to the Marlboro Food Pantry for the last eight years. Gretel considers her gardening interests to be eclectic, which is to say she know a little about a lot of different areas, but not too much about any one thing in particular.

Members: $12
General Admission: $20
