Back to Basics: Growing Food in the Cold

January 13 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Join Nathan Ballentine (Man in Overalls); Urban Farmer, Entrepreneur, Educator, Community Organizer who is growing food in Jacksonville, FL. ​He will teach us how to protect our gardens when the weather gets cold and the days get shorter. We are lucky here in NE Florida that we can grow food throughout the winter. Come learn how to do it well!​

Join “Man in Overalls” for a primer on what to do when it freezes in N.Fla. We’ll talk seasonally appropriate crops, no-brainer cold-prep practices, what not to do, and more involved season extension solutions, so you can keep enjoying growing your groceries in spite of freezing temperatures. Bring your questions and experiences- good and bad. (Experienced gardeners also welcome.)
