Bedford 2020, Bedford Garden Club and Mt. Kisco Elementary School co-sponsored an event called VegOut. It took place at the Mt. Kisco Elementary School Community garden on Saturday, April 6, 2013. This was a hands-on event that featured a series of mini-workshops and enabled one-on-one conversations with local experts on vegetable gardening. The event was designed to provide an opportunity for beginners to seasoned growers to improve their gardening skills.
Sue Ostrofsky, Principal of MKES & Community Garden welcomes new visitors.
Early spring is the time to get yourself organized on what you need to know to tackle questions about designing, building and maintaining a garden, composting, health and nutrition benefits, pests, problems and diseases.
