At the Hub, we revel in the excitement of planning for the coming garden season, especially during the cold months of January, February, and now into March! As we map out and plan our own community gardens, we offer in-pantry demonstrations on garden planning and mapping, as well as multiple Garden Planning workshops.
The first step in garden planning is to know your zone, as well as the plants that thrive during each part of the growing season. We like to share information about the needs of different plants, and an essential part of the planning process is knowing the difference between plants that need warm soils, and those that prefer cooler weather. Many wait to plant a garden until May, missing the opportunity for all the cool weather veggies that love early spring in Indiana. See our Cool and Warm Seasons Crop Chart to start planning your garden!
