Mother of four children and farmer at Milkweed Farm in Brunswick, Lucretia has been growing and gathering Medicinal Herbs and vegetables for over 20 years.  At Milkweed Farm, Lucretia grows delicious and nutritious food and medicine for family, friends and the local community, offering summer & fall CSA shares.

This is a postponed Winter Garden Workshop, one of a series of workshops put on by the Land Trust’s Tom Settlemire Community Garden. The Workshops are a wonderful opportunity each winter to learn from master gardeners through practical lectures and hands-on training. Gardeners of all levels can improve their skills.

The workshops focus on organic gardening methods and provide information about topics such as choosing plant varieties, starting seedlings, permaculture, the  use of native plants, soil enrichment and mulching, gardening in small spaces, and controlling common pests and disease.
