• Attend presentations by local experts on seed starting, irrigation, lasagna & container gardening, transplanting, composting, irrigation, mulching, pest control, smart moves in the garden (taught by a physical therapist), and fruit tree pruning
• Exhibit tables on winter gardening, Northern Virginia Extension Service, 4-H in the schools, Master Gardeners, Edible Landscapes, and others
• Free vegetable and herb seeds for AFAC gardeners; containers for bagging donations, seed pots and trays.
• BONUS: Take home coffee grounds to enrich your soil and samples from AFAC’s Walter Reed Garden compost.
