NFLA to Host a Gardeners Roundtable Discussion

Tuesday, June 2 at 10:00am at Sondreson Community Hall

Growing food has been a project for North Forkers for over a hundred years since the time of the first homesteaders in the area. This is the time of year when people are preparing their gardens and planting seeds and seedlings. A variety of gardens exist on the North Fork today……some grow flowers in boxes and some grow native plants while others have gardens and greenhouses with vegetables for feeding the family, as well as, extra for canning and freezing.

Our North Fork climate offers real challenges for gardeners. Some crops seem almost impossible to grow in a place where it can frost any night of the summer! The Gardeners Roundtable on Tuesday is an informal way for us to ask questions and share our knowledge and experience with each other. Please join us if you are a North Fork gardener…..or a wannabe.

Valerie Petti will be selling vegetable seedlings—tomatoes, broccoli, peppers, basil, etc.
