    Workshop Description
    Was your seed order too big for your garden bed? Have you become addicted to homegrown herbs and just want more? We hear you. Kasey from Vivant Gardening Services is back to talk through her tips for maximizing the space in your kitchen garden for more harvests and even longer seasons of growing. She'll share tips on companion planting, succession sowing, and more to help you get all you can from each square foot of growing gold you have in your garden. 

    Instructor Bio
    Kasey Bersett Eaves started growing edibles and her treasured sunflowers at age two on family farm property in Southern Illinois. She hasn't sat down since! Just kidding … Now, as owner of Vivant Gardening Services, she spends her days making gardening with edibles, natives and pollinator plants approachable to area residents, restaurants, schools, and more. Never daunted by the task of growing in a city's unusual spaces, Kasey loves finding creative and easily maintained growing solutions for city dwellers.
