Raised Bed

Raised Bed

UMaine Cooperative Extension Piscataquis County is happy to announce, back by popular demand, the gardening with raised beds series.  This year Master Gardener Volunteer Dotty Hadler  and our staff will teach you how to go from start to finish, or more appropriately, from boards to harvest.  In this series you will learn, hands-on, how to build, plant, maintain, and harvest from raised beds.

For updates and reminders like us on Facebook.

Objective:
For UMaine Extension staff and local Master Gardeners to care for the garden as a group and give monthly classes to show local county citizens how to successfully grow produce in a raised bed or container garden.

Location:
