    Gardening for YPs: Everything in Containers!

    When: Thursday, May 26, 2016 at 05:30 PM
    Where: Marlboro College Graduate School in Brattleboro, VT

    This is a Southern Vermont Young Professionals event. 

    Love gardening, but don't have a backyard? Are you a renter that wants to garden but afraid you won't be there next spring?

    Join us on May 26th, from 5:30-7pm, for our annual Gardening for YP's presentation by Charlie Nardozzi of VPR fame!

    'Everything in Containers' will show you which flowers, herbs, fruits, and veggies will grow best on your porch, in your kitchen, or on your windowsill at the office.

    The presentation will be at Marlboro Graduate Center. Once the presentation concludes, we'll be walking over to the Whetstone Station Biergarten for drinks and to share our respective garden plans!
