Edible Garden Group – Monday, August 13th at 7 PM

The August meeting of the Greater Newburyport Edible Garden Group will be on Monday, August 13th at 7:00 PM at the Bostic home in South Hampton, NH.  

We will learn about hydroponics in a Tower Garden. Hydroponics allows gardeners without soil to grow fruits, vegetable and herbs anywhere there is suitable light. A Tower Garden® simplifies traditional gardening, using a unique vertical, hydroponic and aeroponic garden system that makes it easy to grow your own fresh fruits and vegetables at home, on your deck, and patio..  This garden system uses less than 10% of the water, as well as land normally required for 20-28 plants.  Tower Garden Organic mineral water was developed by Tim Blank of Future Growing.  With this closed system  all vegetables, berries, fruits, and herbs that are not root plants can be grown.  You can begin gardening with plants from your local garden center (thoroughly washing off the soil) or start your own from seedlings.

The address is 2 Main Avenue, South Hampton, NH  03827 which is at the corner of Clement Lane and Main Avenue (Rte 107A).  Please RSVP to Deb Carey boiester@gmail.com if you plan to attend.

The Edible Garden Group was formed by community members who are interested in getting together to learn and share information about sustainable food growing – veggies, fruits, nuts. The meetings are focused on building community resilience through increasing the availability of safe, nutritious, sustainably-grown local food.
