“Overwinter” Workshop

October 5 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

The College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences (CAUSES), of the University of the District of Columbia (UDC), is offering an “overwinter” workshop. “Overwinter” is a term used to describe the process of planting cool-season crops in the late fall to get an early harvest in the spring.

Participants will be exposed to the fundamental concepts behind season extension and winter growing. Participants will learn which vegetables are suitable for “overwintering,” how to time plantings, and crop-care techniques. This workshop will also include a demonstration of row-cover installation for insulating crops during the winter.

Be sure to bring drinking water and weather-appropriate clothing and footwear.
