The Takoma Horticultural Club presents

Edible Landscaping in Small Spaces

Wednesday, February 15 at 7:30 pm
presented by Meredith Sheperd of Love and Carrots
Historic Takoma, Inc., 7328 Carroll Avenue, Takoma Park


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.

Meredith has been working in organic agriculture and environmental sustainability for 15 years. Before 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 received the 2013 DC Mayor’s Sustainability Award, the 2014 Green America Award, and Business Insider’s Top 50 New Businesses in America.

This talk is free and open to the public. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the talk begins at 7:30.

Bring a snack to share and wear a recycled nametag!
