To promote gardening at a community level, to educate, create and encourage community involvement for the betterment of the community, while providing members with the joys of gardening organically.
Join us for a Garlic Gala!
WHEN: Monday, Oct. 25, 6 – 7 p.m.
WHERE: Broadview Heights Recreation Center, 9543 Broadview Road.
COST: Free! But donations are always appreciated.
Join Greene Acres gardeners as they chat about growing garlic: when to plant and harvest it, how to cure and store it, and what to do with those weird curly scapes.
Garlic is easy to grow and while humans love it, deer won’t touch it. Hence, if you have a sunny grass-free spot in your yard with decent soil, you can grow garlic.
We’ll be serving up light refreshments and handing out garlic cloves for you to plant at home (while supplies last).
This event is open to the public, but space is limited so please register for the Gala by dropping the Garden a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and indicating attendees’ names and cities in your email.
Please join us if you love this wonderful allium as much as we do!
This event is in partnership with the City of Broadview Heights. We encourage attendees to wear a mask.
