We've teamed up with the Annual Community Garden Tour, too!You can learn even more by beginning the day at 9 a.m. with the Community Garden Tour, a popular annual event hosted by the Mecklenburg Fruit and Vegetable Coalition. The tour arrives Garinger in time to visit the gardens and take part in the workshops.

Then we will divide into smaller groups at 1:15 and rotate through three breakout sessions:
- Raised beds - Learn how to make a raised bed and winterize it with hoop housing.
- Composting with worms - Discover how easy it is to create super-rich compost through vermiculture.
- Garden/food carts - How to make one and use it in the garden and classroom.
The program will end with a raffle and gift bags for everyone.
