Learn About Gardening at Beaverton City Library

BEAVERTON, Ore. – Beaverton City Library is hosting two upcoming programs for gardeners of all skill levels.

Starting Your Own Vegetable Garden. On Tuesday, March 21, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., OSU Extension Service Master Gardener Tim Lanfri will walk attendees through the process of starting a vegetable garden. Often, new vegetable gardeners, dreaming of lush, productive gardens, are frustrated with their lack of success. Don't let that be you! Mr. Lanfri will talk about site selection, soil preparation, planting times, and water and fertilization needs, as well as general garden maintenance. Focus will be on spring and summer gardens.

Intensive Gardening. On Tuesday, April 4, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., Bob Falconer, OSU Extension Service Master Gardener, will help you take your gardening to the next level. Falconer will introduce you to the techniques used in intensive gardening, which will help you to produce the most from the gardening space that you have. Topics include techniques to plant densely, vertical gardening, interplanting, succession planting, day length strategies, cultivar choices and more.

Both programs will be held at Beaverton City Library Main, 12375 SW Fifth St., and are free and open to the public. No registration is required.
