Looking ahead to summer bounty? Dreaming of juicy tomatoes and tasty greens? At our February meeting,
Meredith Sheperd will explore Edible Landscaping in Small Spaces. Find out how to get the most production
out of your space given its challenges. Basic vegetable garden set up and placement, gardening with low
light levels, gardening in tiny spaces, and common pests and diseases are among the topics to be covered.

founding the DC Urban Gardening company Love & Carrots in 2011, she was the manager of Chailey Farm in Virginia,
producing organic herbs and vegetables for high-end DC restaurants, City Zen and The Sou’wester. Meredith
