Spring Planting: Tips and Considerations

  • Time: 12:15 pm – 1:15 pm
  • Location: Luther College, Valders Hall of Science, Room #362

David Cavagnaro is known nationwide for his gorgeous vegetable photos and extensive gardening knowledge. In the late 1980s, David managed the gardens at Seed Savers Exchange and he continues his commitment to the organization by serving on their board. Today, David grows hundreds of varieties each year, from which he saves seed and generously donates to K-12 schools in the region. David operates the Pepperfield Project, a local non-profit dedicated to renewing food traditions through education about seeds, gardening, cooking and food history. In this class, participants will learn about key planting techniques, crop spacing, pest and disease management, the importance of paying attention to the garden and recognizing spring weeds (and which ones are edible).
