Tara NolanRaised Beds, Tara Nolan      

Whether you have a tiny patio or a large yard, raised beds are a great option as compared to gardening directly in the ground. Benefits include improved accessibility, an extended growing season, and the opportunity to work with a better growing medium versus struggling to amend poor clay soil. Attendees of this presentation will learn more about best practices for raised bed construction and location, soil and plants; and be inspired with ideas to apply in their own garden spaces.

A gifted communicator, Tara Nolan is the author of Raised Bed Revolution, Gardening Your Front Yard, and the co-author of Gardening Complete. She is also the co-founder of the popular gardening website, Savvy Gardening (www.savvygardening.com). As well, she is a popular speaker at venues such as Canada Blooms, Royal Botanical Garden and Toronto Botanical Garden.
