The talk on Tuesday 23 March at 6.30pm is jointly sponsored by the Belfast Free Library and the Belfast Garden Club. To register for the Zoom link, go to belfastlibrary.org/virtual-programs/.

Perkins will take attendees on a virtual tour of Headacre Farm, which was originally a functioning saltwater farm and is now home to their 10,000-square-foot market garden. She will talk about planning and keeping a record of the growing season, as well as more advanced techniques like following planting, crop rotation, growing unusual varieties, and cover crop.

Growing vegetables can be great fun, Anne believes. In addition, a vegetable garden can be as beautiful as a flower garden. She will show gardeners how to take their own gardens to a new level by incorporating annual or perennial flowers into vegetable patches or vegetable patches.

Anne has been gardening since she was four and has left a trail of gardens during her move, including in Florida and Alaska. Based in Maine since 2001, she can now devote herself to gardening full time, enjoying every minute of it.

The Belfast Garden Club has been promoting the creation and maintenance of public gardens for more than 90 years, featuring speakers who promote the knowledge and love of gardening. The 2021 programs include topics related to nature conservation and the environment. More information is available at BelfastGardenClub.org.
