Spring 2016 through Fall 2016 – organic gardening classes to start at the Wachovia Garden (see on Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/Wachovia-Garden-187189111300272/?ref=ts&fref=ts ) which is located behind the Belo Home in historic Old Salem. Location is at the corner of Church Street & Bank Street. Also accessible by Main Street.
Time: Tuesdays from 5:30- dusk. Come when you can.
The 2 acre garden, now in it’s 6th year, grows heirloom vegetables and fruits from the Old Salem period.
The classes will include tilling, planting, weeding, watering, trimming & pruning, seasonal planting, plus an opportunity to put on a bee suit and look at the hives.
Here’s an article that discusses how gardening really hasn’t changed much since the colonial times.
What is grown at Wachovia Garden goes to Sunnyside Ministries to feed the hungry.
The garden exists thanks to the generosity of the Moravian Church’s Southern Province.
