Description: Do you lack space to garden, do you rent your home, or are the deer eating your garden? Then growing vegetables in containers may be your solution. On April 25th, 2019 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Watauga Agricultural Conference Center located at 252 Poplar Grove Rd in Boone, the Watauga office of North Carolina Cooperative Extension will be offering a class on Growing Vegetables in Containers. Come learn what vegetables can grow well in containers, how to pick the right size container, the type of soil to use, and how to get the plants started. The class will conclude with everyone starting their own lettuce container garden to take home to grow. $10 fee to cover the cost of pots, soil and seedlings will be collected the day of the class. If you wish to observe class without creating a container garden to take home, there is no charge. To register call the Watauga Extension office at 828-264-3061 or email paige_patterson@ncsu.edu
