Join us at Garden Dreams Urban Farm & Nursery where Outreach Manager, Bob Madden, will lead this workshop on Preparing for Fall and Winter Gardening.  Learn about the exciting possibilities of cold season harvest!  We will discuss how to prepare, plant, manage, harvest, and extend the harvest of a variety of hardy vegetables.

With 8 years of farming experience and 12 years as an environmental and garden educator, Bob brings a passion to meet the challenges of food production, consumer culture, and stewardship of the earth in our time.  His experience includes training with San Joaquin Outdoor School, Growing Power’s Commercial Urban Agriculture program, and the Rhizome Collective’s Urban Sustainability Training.

Garden Dreams Urban Farm & Nursery is a small, certified organic, community-oriented business committed to increasing access to healthy, fresh food by providing strong vegetable, herb and flower starts to home gardeners, community gardens, nonprofits, schools and retail markets.  Their little oasis sits on two reclaimed vacant lots in Wilkinsburg, near Pittsburgh’s East End. They specialize in heirloom varieties of tomato, pepper, and eggplant seedlings and also grow produce that is provided weekly to their "Mini-CSA" members.  In addition to selling hard to find vegetable varieties, they also carry organic gardening essentials.
