Join the Common Grounds Community Garden for a morning of gardening workshops, lessons and hands-on-activities led by local gardening experts. 


Workshop #1: Healthy Soil at the Root of Your Garden – Enjoy hands-on activities as we explore the composition of soil and identify different soil textures. Learn how to select appropriate species of plants for your garden based on your own garden soil. Workshop led by Becky Laboy, M.Ed. Education Outreach Coordinator, Ocean County Soil Conservation District.


Workshop #2: Build an Olla for Watering the Garden – Learn about the Olla system, the ancient watering practice using clay pots, and how it can help your garden beds and containers become “self-watering.” Build an olla for a small garden area or planter (all materials provided free). Workshop led by Shari Kondrup Watershed Education and Outreach, Brick Township Municipal Utilities Authority.


These workshops are for participants ages 16+ with a suggested donation of $5 per person.  All materials will be provided. Registration is required as there is a limited number of slots available.
