Square Foot Gardening with Amrita Cottrell

Master Gardener Amrita Cottrell will lead a class on Square Foot Gardening at the library this spring. Square Foot Gardening, which was developed by Mel Bartholomew in 1976, uses small, raised beds instead of crop rows in the ground. The beds are divided into 12” x 12” squares thus the name square foot, and gardeners follow a formula for how plants can fit into each square to maximize production and minimize care.
