Square Foot Gardening Classes

  


      Lampasas Community Gardens is winding down our Fall Garden planting. Lettuces, radishes, broccoli, and kale are still viable though by planting plants, not seeds. Though the projected freeze date is coming up sometime in November, most of our plants should survive a light freeze. This is the time to get your tools cleaned and sharpened and put away for the winter months.
         To get ready for the spring season, take advantage of some free classes to learn about the Square Foot Garden Method and plan for the early winter and spring planting season. We will be featuring the Square Foot Garden in November, December, and January. Come and find out what makes a Square Foot Garden different from how your grandparents gardened. Let us help you plan what and when to plant. We will even throw in a nutrition class along the way. Then, weather permitting, we will build a demonstration garden in the Lampasas Community Gardens. See the flyer below for the dates and times of the classes. These classes are for everyone who wants to garden, at home, on an apartment balcony, or rent a garden bed at the Lampasas Community Gardens. 

    The 3rd Edition Square Foot Garden manual will be for sale at the class for those who wish to purchase it.  It is not mandatory. The classes are free, however, donations are welcome and will go to the Lampasas Community Gardens scholarship fund.

Fall Gardening

Did you know that some of the best food is grown in the fall? The temperature is cooling down especially at night which allows the seeds that germinate in the warm soil to sprout. It is a lot more comfortable to work in the garden, too. We have several garden beds all ready to be planted. If you would like to try gardening we would like to help you get started. Come by and see what is growing. We have a few beds ready for planting right now. If you see a gardener, come in and visit with them , see what they are planting. Email us at lampasascommunitygardens@gmail.com.

Accessibility Plan

 

Would you like to garden, but you can’t bend over because of back problems or you are in a wheelchair? LCG is working on a plan to make gardening available to you too. Please email us and let us know if you are interested. lampasascommunitygardens@gmail.com.

The Shed Arrived!

 After a long-delayed delivery date, our shed was finally delivered on July 29, 2021. The team who delivered it assembled it, too. Delayed gratification? We are so very excited to finally have it! Thank you to Safeguard Metal Buildings for a wonderful job - true professionals. And thank you to LCRA for their donation that made this possible.

Micronutrients are one of the major groups of nutrients your body needs. They include vitamins and minerals. Vitamins are necessary for energy production, immune function, blood clotting and other functions. Meanwhile, minerals play an important role in growth, bone health, fluid balance and several other processes. Learn all about them in our upcoming class by Hadley Berry. No charge, but donations are appreciated.
