Planning the Vegetable Garden: Part 2: Crop Rotation & Mapping the Garden

Adults & Teens Registration

Winter is the right time to think spring and prepare for the gardening season. Join us for the second of a two-part series with Extension Marathon County to learn about rotating and mapping your plot!

In this interactive web class, led by Extension Horticulture Educator Janell Wehr, we will cover essential elements when mapping and planting your garden, including crop rotation. Crop rotation is fundamental in preventing and limiting disease and pest issues. Participants will learn how to apply their planting plan to a garden map, keeping in mind spacing, heights, and successive gardening over the seasons.

The class is free to attend and registration is required. Click the "Register" button on this page to sign up, or contact Janell at janell.wehr@wisc.edu for more information. This same class will be held in the evening of Jan. 21. You can also sign up here for part one of the series on site and cultivar selection.
