Grow your own food

Gardens are cropping up all over the Triangle. Yesterday’s N&O featured this article on the front page,  More People Try to Grow Own Food.

A dismal economy and a new consciousness about food safety have led to a 19 percent rise this year in household gardens, according to the National Gardening Association.

Interested in trying your hand at a garden?

Well, you are in luck as today is Arbor Fest at the JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  It’s FREE and packed with topics for the topics of interest to eco-minded gardener.

Topics include:

  • Composting
  • Organic Insect Management
  • Rain gardening
  • Vermiculture (worms for ya’ll non-gardeners)

More coming!  Gotta get ready for Arbor Fest.  See you there!
