Vegetable Gardening Video

There is increased interest in vegetable gardening this year, which we at WMMGA are very happy to see. Because we know there are some pitfalls in growing vegetables, and because we would like to see everyone be successful, we are presenting a free video introduction to vegetable gardening.

Our speaker is Dr. Ron Kujawski, former UMass Extension Service agent and Gardener Extraordinaire. He has a comprehensive understanding of good gardening practices, and a well-earned reputation as an excellent and knowledgeable speaker. Dr. Kujawski is one of the teachers in our training classes and always gets great reviews.

Enjoy, and welcome to better vegetable gardening!! Click here to watch the lecture.

"The Western Massachusetts Master Gardener Association acknowledges the long and painful history of discriminatory injustice that has shaped American culture, custom, and policy in ways that are often difficult to perceive and appreciate. It is committed to doing what it can to remedy that, including changing the ways it pursues its mission, so that all persons, without exception, are made welcome to participate in its programs and activities." - WMMGA Board of Directors
