Closing Out the Tyler Street Community Garden

With the snow on its way it’s time to close out another successful gardening season at the Tyler Street Community Garden. Our volunteers have put in a tremendous amount of effort to revitalize and maintain the community garden this year and we want to end the year strong with one last workshop and workday.

Putting Your Garden to Bed 2Putting Your Garden To Bed

Learn how to prep your ground and raised beds for the cold, winter months in this free workshop presented by expert gardener Caesandra Seawell. This is a learn-by-doing demonstration so come prepared for one last round of gardening as we’ll be covering the beds and laying down landscaping fabric and mulch along the paths between the raised beds. Anyone and everyone is welcome so bring a friend or two to get your last minute gardening fix!

*Note: We have King Alfred Daffodil bulbs available for any participants
