The Victory Garden Reinvented!

Shelter-in-place is a new concept for most of us, and as we spend more time confined to our homes, many people are finding that time outdoors in the garden relieves stress and provides needed exercise. And as a bonus, delicious vegetables and fruits can be grown and harvested at a reduced cost.

The Penn State Extension Master Gardener Program is taking a fresh look at Victory Gardening during the current pandemic.  Extension educators and Master Gardeners will be providing up-to-date, research-based information on best practices for growing vegetables in the ground, containers, and raised beds. This ten-week webinar series will be held on Tuesdays, beginning April 14 from noon to 1 p.m.

Topics covered include vegetable gardening basics: seed starting, site selection, soils, mulching, integrated pest management, weeds, and succession planting. Sessions will also cover cultural requirements and pest problems for specific vegetables and fruits.

The webinars are free to attend, but you will need to register online to receive the link. The sessions will also be recorded and will be available on the Penn State Extension website, Victory Garden Reinvented Webinar Recordings.
