Join Hamilton County Master Gardener Volunteer, Tom Richey online June 9, 2020 at 3:00 pm for a presentation titled Tools & Techniques to Improve Your Small-Space Vegetable Garden.

In addition to the gardening basics of soil, fertilizer, sun and water, Tom will be discussing his nearly 40 years of trial-and-error experiments that have resulted in tips that really work in Cincinnati!  Learn about vertical trellising, tall tomato cages, potatoes under straw, walking boards, composting leaves & grass clippings, weed reduction, rabbit & deer control and dense planting. Tom planted his first tiny vegetable garden in Finneytown in 1981.  His current garden in Colerain Township is still relatively small at 10’x25', but packs a lot of vegetables into a small space.  After retiring from P&G in 2012, Tom became a Master Gardener Volunteer.  With further Extension training as an MGV Community Garden Specialist, he began managing a small community garden at Pleasant Run Presbyterian Church in 2017.
