More on How to Water Your Garden Webinar
University of Arizona Cooperative Extension Gila County presents: Garden and Country Extension Webinar Series. From February 11 to April 15, 2021, I am proud to be hosting the spring gardening classes for the Payson Community Garden in northern Gila County. You are invited to join us and learn along with Payson’s community gardeners. Classes include soil building and its great benefits, ways to have healthy plants throughout the garden season, how to keep bugs and disease away, and harvesting at the right time. Presenters will be available for Q&A to discuss applying practices to your situation.
Featured Topic: More on How to Water Your Garden Webinar
Featured Speaker: Bill Pitterle, Payson Community Gardener: Bill has been with the garden since 2013. He has successfully grown his own garden with great tomatoes, butternut squash, pumpkins and really hot peppers - like the Ghost Pepper. Bill is team leader for automatic watering of the garden and repairs as necessary of the water system. He has successfully grown the popular pie pumpkins for our fall Pumpkin Patch for the last several years and as an added attraction he grew Indian Corn that was over 11 foot high with beautifully colored kernels.
Webinar Overview: Payson Community Garden’s Bill Pitterle explains coordinating the watering schedule and optimizing water-saving techniques essential to conserve our limited resource -- while still producing a bumper crop of vegetables, green and fruits. Over the years Payson Community Garden volunteers have become adept at maximizing their harvest, using the least amount of water possible.
