COLUMBUS - Interested in learning how to create a garden and grow vegetables? Then join the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation for the Vegetable Gardening for Beginners online meeting Tuesday at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
"Farm Bureau has a long history of working with people who grow food," said Janet Cassidy, OFBF senior director of marketing communications. "And we know food production doesn't just happen in farm fields, but also in backyards and gardens across the state."
Cassidy will be joined by Pam Bennett, Ohio State master gardener and Bren Haas, of BGgarden.com. Topics will include soil preparation, planting, weed and pest control, fertilizer and more.
Additionally, participants can join the Our Ohio Gardening Facebook Group, open to anyone interested in talking about gardening in Ohio.
The event is free, but registration is required by Monday. For information, to register or to join the Our Ohio Gardening Facebook Group, visit OurOhio.org and click "Getting Started in Vegetable Gardening."
