How To Get The Most Produce From Your Raised Garden Bed

Raised bed gardening is a simple technique that can improve the health and productivity of your garden.  Raised beds have better soil structure and drainage, allowing the soil to warm up earlier in the season, giving you a head start on Spring.  We have three Master Gardeners ready to demonstrate what to plant, when to plant, how to space, and how to harvest in order to get the most out of your raised bed-whether it be on the ground or in a container.  Join us if you love gardening, there’s always something to learn!


Moose Lake Community Garden & Orchard (next to school’s bus garage, County Road 10)
Thursday, May 13  7:00 p.m.   OR  Saturday, May 15 10:30 a.m.
Course Fee:  Free, but please register!     
 If the weather doesn’t cooperate, join us in the ML School Commons.

Corrugated Tin Raised Garden Beds 
 (kits available for purchase)

Here’s the chance to make your own raised garden bed, just like the ones in the Community Garden & Orchard located next to the bus garage.  You’ll get hands-on experience and tried and true practices as we build a bed or two or three during the class. Don’t have materials or tools to make one at home?  We’ll have kits made for you to partially assemble, then finish at home.  These kits will fit in the back of a pickup and are approximately  3ft. x8 ft.  You’ll only need a drill to finish the project at home.  

MLHS Shop Room      Please drive around to the back of the school to enter the Shop Room
Sunday, May 16th  1:00-4:00 p.m.
Course Fee:  $5 for Instructional Class      Materials Fee IF you want to purchase a kit:  $200
