Gardening Events: Columbus OH Late Summer 2009
There are several growing events happening around central Ohio in July, August, and September *Ohio Farm Bureau Grow And Know Seminar is July 18 at the Bob Evans center in Rio Grande. Topics from bees to mulch. Registration closes July 6. $25 members, $85 non members.
*The American Community Garden Association is holding their annual conference at the Franklin Park Conservatory this year August 6 - 9. Early registration ends July 6. Full conference cost is $200 members, $250 non members. I'm considering going to the Saturday only, which is $100.
*Franklin Park Conservatory also offers weekend gardening programs. They are $15 per session. The most recent Franklin Park newsletter suggested they are starting a certificate program, which I inquired about but haven't heard back any details. At any rate, upcoming classes are:
July 18 10:30 - 12 - wise water use
August 1 10 - 11 planning your fall garden
September 19 10 - 11 putting your garden to bed
*Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association (OEFFA) is offering a whole series of farm tours and workshops around the state. I will be attending the Beekeeping workshop Sept. 13 for sure. I have this crazy idea that we might try an urban hive next spring.
*September 11 - 13 is the Franklin Park Conservatory Field to Table event. There's a wicked expensive dinner ($300 per person?!) on Friday night and a details-to-be-added festival Saturday and Sunday.
If I missed any sustainable gardening events, please comment and let me know.
