Designing Your Summer Kitchen Garden (SOLD OUT)

  • The Local 420 3rd Street Wausau, WI, 54403 United States (map)

Have you dreamed of a bountiful beautiful kitchen garden; porch-side containers filled with herbs, salad ingredients and flowers; or simply want to plan a practical fun garden for yourself or your family to enjoy and experiment in? This is the event for you!

Join Kat Becker from Cattail Organics in Athens WI for an afternoon filled with garden planning and Spring inspired snacks + drinks. Kat will draw on her twenty years of personal organic gardening and farming experience to help guide you to a beautiful, tasty and doable vision for a garden to fit your needs – from rambunctious kids to pets and shade Kat has ideas and approaches for every challenge you may have.

Kat will cover container gardening; raised beds, and in the ground gardens overall and tailor her information to the participants needs and visions. All levels of gardening experience welcome!

Each participant will be asked to fill out a short questionnaire (submitted by email before the event) and will receive a draft plan to work from with the group including plant types, locations, fertilizers or inputs, seed suppliers for any seeded crops, watering, planting dates, harvest information, crop storage and more!

Everyone will be able to take home three seedlings of their choice [[a $10 value]] and will walk away with a technical plan from Kat, a sketch (made by you), and a resource booklet, soil sampling bags and Spring inspiration. Kat will also have mini farmers market set up for the purchase of additional seedlings if desired.
