Raised Bed Vegetable Gardening

Thursday, September 7, 2023

6:30 pm. – 8:30 p.m.

Instructor: Robert Bowden

Forget about growing plants single file in long, parallel rows. You can grow up to 10 times the amount of produce in the same space by using raised beds. In a raised garden bed, you keep outside weeds away from your garden soil, prevent water runoff, eliminate soil compaction, and worry about less slugs and bugs. Enjoy a fun-filled presentation by Robert as he helps you discover the joys of growing vegetables and herbs in raised beds.

Robert Bowden retired as Executive Director of Leu Gardens after nearly three decades. Earlier in his career he was the Executive Director of the Atlanta Botanical Garden, Director of Horticulture of the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis, and Assistant Director of Old Westbury Gardens on Long Island. He is the author of many books including Florida Fruit & Vegetable Gardening: Plant, Grow, and Harvest the Best Edibles and the Florida Top Ten Garden Guide. He also teaches several horticulture classes in the Science Department at Valencia State College.
