Companion Planting

Speaker: Joannie Bass and Jeannie Rippee

February 19, 2013

Joannie and Jeannie are twin sisters and long-time members of the Springfield Area Herb Society.  They are Master Gardeners with many years of gardening experience.  Companion Planting is a very popular class and one that is asked for each year.   This is going to be a great program and will give us ideas of various herbs and flowers to grow with our vegetables to help  keep the bad bugs away enabling us to increase our garden crop this year.  Bring a pen and paper, you will want to take notes.
