    Honey... Beeswax...Pollination... Royal Jelly...Bee Pollen.

    Honey bees supply us with many important things–join Fall Creek Gardens and Slow Food Indy for an

    Introduction to Beekeeping!

    Ross Harding, from the Indiana Beekeepers Association, is leading this presentation on keeping honey bees. 

    Whether you hope to

    • produce your own honey
    • make homemade cosmetics and candles from the beeswax
    • or simply hope to have bigger and better yields in your garden, thanks to those busy pollinators

    …this presentation will get you headed in the right direction. 

    Not only will you be able to learn from a local expert, but there will also be supplies and products for sale from Wildflower Ridge Honey Farm!

    Please register today and let us know you are coming!

    Fall Creek Gardens and Slow Food Indy are excited to partner on this event!

    Fall Creek Gardens and the Indiana Organic Gardeners Association (IOGA) are TEAMING UP on winter classes:

    Organic Gardening for Beginners
    Class Three:  SUSTAIN

    Weeds, pests, droughts, and other calamities.

    After working hard to cultivate fertile soil and nourish tiny seedlings into robust, healthy garden plants, a gardener’s work is finished until harvest, right?

    Well.  No. Not really.  What about insect pests?  Plant diseases?  What if we have another extended drought?

    Never fear!  Join us for the third class in our series and learn how to make sure your garden thrives organically.  Topics will include:

    • Pests and diseases for common crops
    • When and how to fertilize
    • Weed control
    • Water conservation in the garden
    • Pruning, removing spent flower heads

    Bring your questions (and a friend) and join the conversation.  Spring is almost here!

    Register today.

    • Unleavened Bread Cafe, community room, 3001 N Central Avenue

    Fall Creek Gardens and the Indiana Organic Gardeners Association (IOGA) are TEAMING UP on winter classes:

    Organic Gardening for Beginners
    Class Four:  SAVE

      Harvest and enjoy–and save those seeds for spring!

    If you think of the harvest as one big event in late summer or fall, join our final class and be prepared to think again!  Harvesting and seed saving occur throughout the growing season, and with the proper techniques, your garden can extend well into winter.  Imagine snipping greens for salads in February…or pulling up carrots that have been sweetened by the winter’s cold temperatures. 

    Just in time for spring gardening, this class will cover:

    • Crop rotation and succession planting
    • Harvesting
    • Seed-saving and seed storage
    • Season-extension methods
    • Fall preparation for spring planting

    Ready to get growing?
