Growing your own garden can reap a lot of benefits. Not only does it provide lovely scenery right outside your home, but you can also save a lot of money and have more control over what you put into your body if you grow your own food.
Soon, the spring season will be here, and it will be the perfect time to begin gardening. In anticipation of that, Oklahoma County Master Gardeners is once again offering a helping hand to gardeners in the community to help prepare them before the growing season starts.
A Garden Boot Camp will be held for three consecutive Saturdays at the Oklahoma County Extension Service, 930 N Portland Ave., starting on January 25. The boot camp will provide helpful information to gardeners to assist them in having more bountiful yields this year. Topics will include soil fertility and choosing the right annuals and perennials for your garden.
The program will start from 9:30 a.m. and last until 3:15 p.m. The registration fee is $35, which includes supplies. The deadline for enrollment is January 17.
