The summer is heating up and watering our gardens is a must. While watering a garden may seem simple, improper irrigation can increase disease incidence as well as nutrient loss. Luckily, N.C. Cooperative Extension Currituck County Center has a free class to tackle this issue.

Join us at the Currituck County Extension Office, on Wednesday, July 7, 2021 from 10:00 a.m. to Noon as we continue our summer gardening series with everything you need to know about irrigation. In this class we’ll cover

  • when and how to properly water your garden,
  • how to identify nutrient deficiencies,
  • and how to install temporary and permanent irrigation systems.

In this, hands-on, outdoor class, we’ll install a drip irrigation system to our raised bed teaching garden behind the office. We’ll cover some of the pros and cons of a system like this, and go over everything you need to set up a system of your own for your garden. We’ll also cover how to modify this system for container and traditional gardens. This is a class you won’t want to miss!

Register online at https://veggiegardenupdateirrigation.eventbrite.com, and come dressed to be outdoors (we’ll provide bottled water).
