Gretel Anspach, a recent past president of the Massachusetts Master Gardeners Association, software engineer, and member of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society’s Board of Trustees will give a talk about cold frames. Cold frames and hoop houses are a way of extending the growing season, allowing vegetables to be planted 2-4 weeks earlier and helping seedlings transition from inside to the outdoors. We will learn how, where and when to use these interesting tools in our gardens.
All Somerville Garden Club meetings are free and open to the public. Meetings are usually held the second Wednesday of each month at the Tufts Administration Building, (TAB), 167 Holland Street, second floor, wheelchair accessible. Parking is available, and the building is a ten-minute walk from the Davis Square MBTA stop.
