LOS LUNAS—To aid beginning gardeners in New Mexico, New Mexico State University Cooperative Extension Service’s Ideas for Cooking and Nutrition is offering a free program, Seed to Supper Beginning Vegetable Gardener Series.
The six-week course is designed to teach beginning vegetable gardeners how to successfully grow their foods from planning to harvest.
The class will be held at 10:30 a.m. to noon, every Wednesday, from April 6 through May 11, at the Valencia Community Gardens on Silva Road in Tomé.
The six-week course covers a new topic each week to educate gardeners on growing their own food in New Mexico’s climate. Topics include planning, soil, planting, garden care and harvest.
“Gardening can be challenging in New Mexico,” said Sally Cassady, ICAN food systems specialist. “This Seed to Supper series will help beginning gardeners learn skills and tips for improving their gardening success in Valencia County.”
