Savvy Gardener series continues ‘Secrets of Companion Planting in Your Edible Garden’ will be next class

  • Written by Woodinville Water District

The next class in the Savvy Gardener series being held at Woodinville Water District is, “Secrets of Companion Planting in Your Edible Garden.” This class will be taught by Laura Matter from Seattle Tilth. We will discuss how everything in the garden is connected Instead of combining plant varieties that compete with each other for water and nutrients, you will learn how to choose communities of plants that grow well together and encourage each other’s growth. Laura will also discuss characteristics of your annual and perennial food crops, and how to group them together into mutually beneficial plant communities for maximizing space and harvest. In addition, we will explore the permaculture concept of “guilds” and use nature as a model for expanding your garden.

The class will be held from 10 - 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 20, at Woodinville Water District’s public meeting room located in Building A at 17238 NE Woodinville-Duvall Road, Woodinville. Attendance is free, but pre-registration is necessary due to space limitations.
