Growing a Winter Vegetable Garden Webinar
University of Arizona Cooperative Extension Gila County presents: Garden and Country Extension Webinar Series. A Zoom webinar (60-minutes or less) featuring a variety of horticultural and natural resource topics relevant to the environmental conditions and residential concerns of Gila County, Arizona.
Featured Topic: Growing a Winter Vegetable Garden Webinar
Featured Speaker: Kim Stone was a horticulturist and arborist at Boyce Thompson Arboretum for over 20 years and an avid organic vegetable gardener before that. While punching the clock, he grew and maintained trees, shrubs, herbs, and other arid land plants from desert regions around the world. In his off time, he continued as a backyard gardener, growing ornamentals, fruit trees and modest summer and winter vegetable gardens at his home in Globe, AZ.
Webinar Overview: Kim will explain and demonstrate his techniques for small scale vegetable gardening during the cooler months of the year at 3500’ elevation. A cool season garden is more productive, easier to grow, and requires far less water than a summer garden. He will discuss soil mixes, raised beds, plant and seed selection, fertilization, irrigation, and protecting plants from cold and varmints.
Webinar Facilitator: Chris Jones, Extension Agent, University of Arizona Gila County Cooperative
