Vegetable gardening workshop offered

Oklahoma

Residents who want to learn how to plant and grow beautiful, nutritious vegetables are invited to attend a vegetable gardening workshop March 14, at the Oklahoma County OSU Cooperative Extension Service in Oklahoma City.

The workshop, which will be held from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m., will focus on helping gardeners learn how to prepare their soil for vegetables, how to choose varieties that will do well in Oklahoma's climate and how to maintain their garden once they've planted it.

"We focus on providing our gardeners with the latest information from university-based research," said Ray Ridlen, OSU Extension Horticulture educator. "Putting new research to work for you really can help increase garden yields and decrease the overall workload associated with gardening."

Even experienced gardeners should be able to learn from this workshop, Ridlen indicated, since it focuses on new information within the industry.

"Gardening can be one of the most rewarding experiences there is, but it can also be frustrating if your time and effort doesn't add up to production. That's where education comes in," Ridlen added.

The vegetable gardening workshop will also be offered at the Midwest City Library March 19, from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.

All of the seminars are offered free to the public. For more information contact the Oklahoma County office at 405-713-1125.
