Raised Bed Workshop

Saturday, April 6, 2019 - 9:00am to 12:00pm
Event Type: 

Join us for this workshop to learn how to build a raised bed box, the benefits of gardening in a raised bed, and a variety of techniques that you can use for season extension & pest management.

Participants will hear from Des Moines County Master Gardeners about various raised bed designs and materials, and watch a demonstration of a simple bed design being built. 

Then workshop participants will be given the opportunity for some hands-on learning. We will have tools and materials available so that anyone who wants to participate in building a raised bed can.

There is no fee to attend, but pre-registration is required so that we have enough materials for everyone. Please contact Morgan at the Des Moines County Extension & Outreach office to register - mhoenig@iastate.edu or call 319-671-7165

The beds built during this workshop will be utilized at the Homestead 1839 farm as part of the "Growing Together" donation garden project. Master Gardeners across the state of Iowa are growing fruits and vegetables for the sole purpose of being donated to area food pantries. This garden site will also be a venue for future gardening workshops, so follow Des Moines County Master Gardeners to keep up to date with educational garden activities.
