Ask the Farmer workshop on October 19

MEREDITH — The last installment of Moulton Farm's Good Gardening Workshop series will feature Ask the Farmer on Saturday, October 19 at 10:30 a.m. 

"Although many people think the gardening season is over, this is the perfect time for the workshop," explains John Moulton, owner of the farm. "We're still growing things and will be harvesting for a few more months, but we're also doing things to prepare for next year's garden season. Home gardeners should also be doing a number of things to help prevent problems in next year's garden and encourage good harvests. Plus, it's a great time to ask questions about things that happened in your garden this year, while they are fresh in your memory."

Moulton Farm is located at 18 Quarry Road off Route 25 in Meredith. The farm practices sustainable agriculture and is dedicated to providing the highest quality products while preserving its rich soil for future generations. More information is available at moultonfarm.com.
