Playing off of the victory gardens of World War II, we now have “recession gardens.”
I am SO excited to be able to go to a Recession Garden training course here on campus starting in March. It’s offered by the ultimately cool Jefferson Farm & Gardens and will be presented by Jim Wilson, an apparently prolific gardener, educator, and former host of “The Victory Garden” on PBS.
I’m especially excited about being able to go because I tried to sign up for the first section they offered, but it had filled up within four days of opening. I plan to grow a large majority of our foodstuffs this season, so I’m very very excited. Plus I get continuing education credits for Master Gardener! Columbia is so cool!
