"Year Round Vegetable Bounty: Planning for a Fall and Winter Harvest"

Multnomah County Master Gardeners Summer Series

Tuesday, July 10, 2012 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Multnomah County Master Gardeners Summer Series ‘In the Garden’ "Year Round Vegetable Bounty: Planning for a Fall and Winter Harvest"

Speaker: Jen Aron, owner Peaceful Gardens, garden educator

Summer is the time to plan and plant your fall and winter garden. Learn how to extend your garden's harvest through the chilly fall and winter months. Jen will discuss how to plan your fall and winter garden; what crops (and specific varieties) will withstand our wet, cold winters; techniques and timing for planting; and simple season extension techniques, such as shade cloth for heat sensitive seeds and cloches to protect vegetables for a long and productive harvest.

Jen Aron has owned and operated Peaceful Gardens, a sustainable landscape design business in Portland, since 2007. In addition to her design work, Jen has served as a garden educator since 2009, teaching for OSU Extension, Metro, PSU, Portland Nursery, and the City of Portland. Jen is currently an instructor for the Beginning Urban Farming Apprenticeship Program, a seven-month course designed to provide in-depth and comprehensive training in sustainable, small-scale, urban farming methods. Jen is also the garden coordinator for the Better Together Garden at City Hall, an edible urban garden in the heart of downtown that grows and donates food for Loaves and Fishes. Jen is passionate about teaching and growing food and loves using plants that attract beneficial insects and pollinators to help keep the garden in balance.
