Wild Weather and Growing
Winter Garden Workshop & Tom Settlemire Community Garden Fundraiser
Have you noticed changes in weather patterns and our sometimes wild weather? We now expect more extreme weather, a longer growing season, too much rain or too little, and changes in pest populations at different times seasonally. Learn more about the future that lays ahead and how to manage new gardening challenges as our weather changes.
Glen Koehler’s work involves helping all kinds of growers and gardeners address the immediate challenges caused by weather, and the longer term issues developing due to climate change. He specializes in weather based harvest predictions and integrated pest management. Glen is an Associate Scientist for the Cooperative Extension of the University of Maine and serves on the Maine Climate and Ag Network team.
This event is one of the Land Trust’s Winter Gardening Workshops, a part of our Tom Settlemire Community Garden. The Workshops are a wonderful opportunity each winter to learn from master gardeners through practical lectures and hands-on training. Gardeners of all levels can improve their skills.
The workshops focus on organic gardening methods and provide information about topics such as choosing plant varieties, starting seedlings, permaculture, the use of native plants, soil enrichment and mulching, gardening in small spaces, and controlling common pests and disease.
Workshops are held on Sundays from January – March each year, from 2:00-3:30pm at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Brunswick.
Venue: St Paul's Episcopal Church
