Vegetable Gardening for Everyone

--Adult Events

Monday, April 5 at 6:30pm

Vegetable gardening is something everyone can enjoy, from the novice to the experienced gardener.  It can be a way to bring fresh food to your table, a way to teach children where food comes from, or even a way to beautify your yard!  We’ll look at different types of vegetable gardens and discuss layout, variety choices, and growing techniques. Presented by Gretel Anspach, Master Gardener with the Massachusetts Master Gardener Association.  

Gretel Anspach is a Trustee of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, a Lifetime Master Gardener with the Massachusetts Master Gardener Association, and a recently-retired systems engineer for Raytheon.  She won the MMGA Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016. Gretel established and maintains a 20,000 square foot food production garden that has provided fresh produce to the Marlboro and Maynard Food Pantries for the last ten years.  Her primary interest and focus is always in the science behind horticulture.

Part of HPL’s Spring Gardening series. This program and series are a collaboration between HPL and the Haverhill Garden Club.
