Core Learning Session Sat & Sun Jun 12 & 13.

Hello Everyone,

The second session in the Root-Riot Core Learning Series takes place this weekend.  On Saturday, June 12th at 2:30 PM at the Madison and Grove site or Sunday, June 13th at 2:30 PM at the Harambee site (Race and Waller).  Each day will have a different speaker but similar topics will be covered.

This session (Maintaining Your Garden) will address maintenance issues like:

  • Weeding
  • Bugs! The good, the bad, and the maybe OK (pdf)
    Chemical and pesticide free solutions
  • Nurturing the soil, adding compost, when and were
  • Watering
  • Adding plants – lettuce is done. What do you do with that space now?
  • Companion plants
  • Composting
  • Etc.

Bring your questions.  If you are not able to attend email your questions to and we will see that you get a response.  Hope you can make it to one of the days!

Sunday is also a build day at the Harambee site from to 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM.  We have material for a fence and we are continuing work on the common area.  Any amount of time that you can contribute would be appreciated.

In the next day or two we will post a link on the Root-Riot web site to a document discussing insects and other pests and how to handle them without using pesticides or chemicals.
