The Seal Rock Garden Club invites the public to a free program on a new technique of growing vegetables.
Linda Sebring, of Corvallis, will expand the possibilities of gardening for people who have challenges with traditional gardening, for gardeners who want to try something new, for gardeners who don't have loads of time to devote to growing food and for gardeners interested in year-round gardening.
Sebring is an organic gardener interested in soil health and composting, making the most of food production and part of the Slow Food Movement of saving and sharing seeds with other gardeners. She has broad experience gained over many years of gardening and found that not everyone has time to spend tending a garden and growing the type of food that they enjoy.
Her program will demonstrate aeroponics, which is a method of growing plants in an air or mist environment without the benefit of soil or soil-based growing medium. Come and learn how aeroponics is different from hydroponics, aquaponics and in-vitro (plant tissue culture) growing. Her program, "Tower Garden: One New Way of Growing Vegetables," is based on the work of Tim Blank and commercialized in a product called the Tower Garden.
All are welcome to attend this presentation on Wednesday, April 17, at the Seal Rock Garden Clubhouse at 10377 NW Rand Street, Seal Rock, next to the old Seal Rock Fire Department. It begins at 11 a.m., followed by a business meeting and a light lunch.
