Plant Your Christmas Dinner

Deck the halls and start thinking about your Christmas dinner!  If you are planning on harvesting veggies from your garden for your Christmas dinner, now is the time to start planting.  At tonight’s Our Whole Community program, OWC Consultant Tia Meer taught 20 attendees how to plant seeds to be ready to harvest in December.  Just some of the veggies that Tia talked about were squash, beans, cucumbers, carrots and more.

Tia’s programming always includes a hands on experience and samples.  Attendees walked away with herbs, seeds and more.  They also enjoyed delicious teas infused with herbs from the garden.

The OWC Garden is located at 550 W. Morse Boulevard in Winter Park and the garden entrance is on Welbourne Avenue.

The next OWC garden program is Gifts from the Garden at Novemer 3rd, from 9 am – 1 pm, at the St. Mary Magdalen Catholic Church Learning Garden.

Plant Your Thanksgiving Dinner



Yes!  It is time to start planting those beans, squash, pumpkins and whatever else yo would like to include in your Thanksgiving dinner now.  On September 21st, OWC hosted a Plant Your Thanksgiving Dinner at the OWC Garden at Winter Park Presbyterian Church.

OWC Garden Consultant Tia Meer spoke to attendees about what should be planted now and how to take care of your garden for optimal growth.  Attendees even got their hands dirty and planted seeds themselves.

Attendees also received seeds and learned about OWC products such as grow boxes and the Perfect Pickler, presented by OWC Garden Director, Rosemary George.

Thank you to OWC Garden Coordinators Mark Wilson and Becky Perez for also attending and planning this event.
