2024 Grow It Cook It Program Series

The Gillespie County AgriLife Extension Office with assistance from the Hill Country Master Gardeners will hold their 6th annual Plantastic Vegetable Gardening Seminar on February 23rd, 2024, from 8:30 AM to 3:35 PM.  Sessions are applicable to both new and experienced vegetable gardeners, organic and conventional, from those looking to learn new techniques to those just wanting to learn how to grow a tomato plant. The program will consist of two general sessions led by Dr. Joe Masabni, Assistant Professor and Extension Horticulturist. Topics will include hydroponics and organic gardening. After an optional lunch, participants will break out twice with their choice of three concurrent sessions, with topics to choose from including  “Tomatoes”, “The Permaculture Ecosystem”, “Good Bugs & Troublemakers”, ”Herbs in your Vegetable Garden”, and “Growing Alliums: Onions, Garlic & More”.  A third breakout session will be the “Lightning Round”,  this year themed around heat and drought vegetable gardening. Participants will pick one lightning round session from their choice of  “Gardening Disasters”, “Vegetables for Heat”, and “Conserving Water in Vegetable Gardens”. Door prizes will be drawn at the end.  During breaks, stop by the seedling table to test your knowledge at identifying the various vegetable seedlings.
