Gardening with Physical Limitations Part 5: Garden Clean-Up and Preparing for Next Year

In this concluding session we will look back over the 2021 growing season and identify what worked and didn't work for people who engaged in home vegetable gardening across the state of Ohio. We will address how to use what we learned this year to plan for the next growing season. We will also provide tips for making garden clean up easier, safe, and identify what needs to be done to prep for next year. There will be time to ask the presenters about specific problems. Presenters Laura Akgerman and Pam Bennett.

Recordings of the previous sessions are or will be available on YouTube.
