ITHACA, N.Y. — Growing garlic is easy, and it is a great crop to add to even the smallest of home gardens. Unlike most vegetable crops, garlic should be planted in the fall, and the period between Halloween and Thanksgiving is the best time to plant garlic in our region.
To help new and experienced gardeners prepare to grow a successful garlic crop this year, Cornell Cooperative Extension Tompkins County will offer an online class, “Growing Great Garlic”, on Tuesday, September 14 from 6:00 to 8:00pm online via Zoom. The class will cover proven methods for growing flavorful organic, disease-free, garlic in your home garden. Class instructor Jennie Cramer is an educator with Cornell Garden Based Learning. She is a former conservation biologist with expertise in organic gardening, regenerative agriculture, natural history and botanical education.
The cost to attend “Growing Great Garlic” is $0-$40/person self-determined sliding scale, pay what you can afford. All classes are recorded and those who register will receive a link to the recording and handouts within 48 hours after the class. Register online at: http://ccetompkins.org/growing-garlic .
