Container Gardening with Janet Carson

May 5 | 6:00 pm

This class will be offered virtually via Zoom. Edible gardening continues to gain in popularity, and limited space is no reason not to grow vegetables.  Container Vegetable Gardening is as easy as growing flowers in a pot.  Join us on May 5 to learn some tips for growing great vegetables in limited space.  We will talk containers, growing media, specific vegetables and culture and care.  

Janet Carson is a horticulturist living in Little Rock.   She has her BS and MS degrees from the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville. Upon completion of her Masters degree, Janet moved to the state extension office to take on the role of statewide horticulture specialist.  She retired January 2, 2019 after a 38-year career with the Cooperative Extension Service. She continues to write weekly columns in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette on Saturdays and monthly columns in Arkansas Living magazines, along with a blog, Planit Janet.  She was the 2003 recipient of the John White Award for Excellence in Extension Education, the 2010 Extension Educator Award from the American Society for Horticultural Science, the 2016 Extension Employee of the Year, and the 2019 UA Horticulture Outstanding Alumni Award.  Her first book In the Garden was published in 2010, and her second book Field to Feast was published in 2016, both by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
