Join the Pittsburgh Garden Experiment for a free lecture by experienced gardener and teacher Carol Brand. She'll cover the basics of soils and vegetables, and answer those basic and not-so-basic questions you might have while starting a food garden.
11:30 a.m. at Schwartz Living Market, 1317 East Carson St. on the South Side. For more information and to register, visit the PGE's Meetup site. Note that the same class will be held at the McKeesport Library on the 20th, and the Fox Chapel Library on the 26th.
Schwartz Living Market is an evolving collaborative space using permaculture design concepts in remodeling an existing building. We'll get a brief intro on what they're doing during the class. You can check out their blog here.
