OSU Extension, Franklin County,  will be partnering with City of Grandview Heights, Parks and Recreation, to host a class for backyard growers, community gardeners and urban farmers on the use of Warm Season Cover Crops. The class will start with a brief lecture on cover crop basics and varietal selection in the McKinley Field Shelter House and then move over to next door Wallace Community Garden for an on-site demonstration of several varieties of warm season cover crops.

The class is FREE and open to the public. Parking is available at McKinley Field, at Wallace Community Garden and on street on Goodale Boulevard, Broadview Avenue and Urlin Avenue. The class starts at 6:30 pm on Wednesday June 20th.

Come learn how you can integrate warm season cover crops into your food growing system to address challenges such as weed management, increased fertility, soil compaction and soil erosion.
