Spring Biointensive Workshops: February 23rd and March 23rd.

IMG_2018

What better time to kick off some great garden workshops than in the spring?!  Randy Fish – Farm Operations Director at the World Hunger Relief Farm – will be leading two 4-hour workshop sessions on the Biointensive method of growing.  Participants are strongly encouraged to attend both workshops – as the 2nd session will build upon the first.  Each session will be held from 8am-12pm out at the World Hunger Relief Farm (356 Spring Lake Road, Waco, 76705).  Each session is free to current UGC members – or costs $10/session for non-UGC members.

To register for these workshops, please visit UGC’s Eventbrite page:  http://hotugc.eventbrite.com/
