Growing Vegetables in Containers and Small Spaces

Iowa State University Extension

Not having an acreage or a large yard is not an excuse for not raising some of your own vegetables. IN FACT—a small yard and several containers maybe the more efficient way to garden for the busy gardener.

Learn container and small space vegetable gardening techniques and share ideas with Master Gardeners Pam Nimtz, Linda Goode and Eileen Blom. This presentation will be Tuesday January 23, 2018 at 6:30 pm.

It will be held at the Mahaska County Extension and Outreach office. This event is free and open to the public. Anyone interested in learning about vegetable gardening in containers and small spaces is welcome.

Mahaska County Master Gardeners are celebrating their fourteenth year. The local program organized after the county held their first training. The educational volunteer program, sponsored by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, provides current, research based, home horticulture information and education to the citizens of Iowa through programs and projects. Master Gardeners receive horticulture training, and volunteer to promote a mission of education and service. The program is open to anyone 18 or older with an interest in gardening and a willingness to use their knowledge, experience and enthusiasm to make a positive impact on their local community.

More information about this and other horticulture events can be found at the Mahaska County Extension Office; 212 North I Street; Oskaloosa Phone 641-673-5841; and
