GARLIC, THE EDIBLE BULB

“Without garlic I simply would not care to live.” – Louis Diat, French Chef & Writer

Garlic has been a miracle plant since Ancient Egypt, not only used for culinary preparation but also to aid health and cure illness. Garlic is often overlooked plant for home gardners, but with a little preparation and care in planting at the right time, growing and harvesting, it is truly a rewarding crop. Come learn how to plant garlic in your own backyard. Practice your planting skills and help Marcel sow garlic at the Farm. Take a free bulb of garlic home to plant in your own garden. We’ll also have donuts and cider to warm up the festivities. Come and celebrate fall with our Garlic Planting!
