Vegetable crops are classified as either ‘warm-season’ or ‘cool-season’ according to their optimum planting time. Cool-season crops are generally planted in early fall to early spring because they do not tolerate the heat stress of the summer. However, cool-season crops vary in the specific horticultural practices needed for optimum production.

Join Matt Jones (Extension Horticulture Agent) and the Master Gardener℠ volunteers of Chatham County for a webinar targeting home and community gardeners on how to grow cool-season vegetables. Participants will learn about planting techniques and timing, best varieties, common problems, and harvesting methods for broccoli, cabbages, carrots. kales, lettuces, onions, peas, potatoes, and asparagus.

Registration is free. To register on Eventbrite, CLICK HERE.

This webinar is part of the Extension Gardener series that is open to everyone. This webinar can also serve as one of six prerequisites needed to be part of the Extension Master Gardener℠ Core Training and Volunteer Program. Learn more about becoming a Master Gardener volunteer in Chatham County.

The Volunteer Core Training was delayed in 2020 due to COVID. The rescheduled training date is to be determined. Contact Matt Jones if you wish to be notified of the next round of Volunteer Core Training or have questions about the program.
