    Raised Bed Gardening
    Matthew Geldin, Head Farmer, Farmscape
    Sat., August 29, 2015, 9 a.m.

    Home gardeners enjoy the robust flavors and enhanced nutrition of homegrown vegetables and fruits, but tending a garden can be back-breaking work. Raised bed gardening is not only easier on your back, it can increase your garden's productivity, extend the growing season, and help keep pests at bay. On Saturday, August 29, from 9-11 a.m., Farmscape Head Farmer Matthew Geldin will explain how to plan, install, and maintain raised beds for easier, more productive gardening.

    Matthew Geldin is a graduate of Cal Poly Pomona's Landscape Architecture Program. Previously a gardener at the LA County Arboretum, Matthew is currently Head Farmer at Farmscape, the largest urban farming venture in California. He is eager to share seasonal growing tips and advice on maximizing your garden harvest with raised bed gardening.
