Grow Your Own Organic Garden Classes 2020


April 8, 2020

ALL CLASSES POSTPONED – Further information coming soon

Grow Your Own Organic Garden has been part of MOFGA’s annual event line-up since 1990, when we began this statewide class on growing organically in your own backyard.  We’ll miss seeing our students in person this year, but are glad to be able to bring you these resources in a digital format.

If you’d like to enjoy the class from the comfort of your own home, we are working to bring this class to you as a webinar. Stay tuned for details!  

We have one in-person class currently scheduled for:

Houlton/Hodgdon Adult & Community Education
HHEC, 18 Military Street
May 27

You can read all the handouts you would have enjoyed in the class right here:

A donor’s guide to vegetable harvest from Maine’s Cooperative Extension

Composting in the back yard or on a small farm

Vegetable Pest & Disease Calendar

Vegetable Planting Guide from Fedco
