Young ginger is not only a beautiful addition to any garden, it is fun to grow and highly beneficial to great health. With the right knowledge cultivating this crop in the mid-west is very much possible. Swainway Urban Farm has been growing young ginger for 5 seasons, join us to learn how to grow young ginger successfully right here in Ohio. In our workshops participants will learn everything they need to know including pre-sprouting instruction, soil preparation, nutrient requirements, and general care of this tropical plant. Young ginger workshops will be offered at two different stages of growth to allow participants to choose their entry level.
Stage 2: This class offered on May 15th @ 2pm will allow participants to bypass the 8-10 week pre-sprout stage. Attendees will assist in on-site soil preparation, soil amending, and engage in hands-on transplanting of pre-sprouted young ginger plants into the garden. Cost is $70 and includes 2 lbs of pre-sprouted young ginger plants along with all the information and inspiration to grow upwards of 20 lbs of young ginger this season!
This workshop will be held outdoors at Swainway East, 1224 E. Cooke Rd, Columbus OH, 43224 from 2-4 pm on Sunday May 15. $70, registration is required.
