Second Grow Greenfield Grow Program a Success

A BIG Thank You to Master Gardener Ray Koch, Patchwork Gardens owner, Stacey Wilt, and Delwyn Walker of OSU Extension, Soil and Water and all of the attendees to last evenings Grow, Greenfield, Grow, gardening program. We learned everything from mosquito repelling plants from Stacey, to raised bed, and permaculture gardening from Ray, and the wonderful opportunities and resources, from our local extension office, for constructing and funding high tunnels, (greenhouses). Everyone went away with packets of seeds, and potted flowers were given away! What a wonderful evening of fun, and learning of more ways to “pay in the dirt”!
