Vegetable Variety Trial Garden (VVTG)

This companion program to Vegetable Varieties for Gardeners (VVfG) is for our Cornell Cooperative Extension programs and community partners from around New York State who are cultivating vegetable demonstration gardens. We are encouraging planting vegetable varieties in a 15’x 15′ public place along with demonstration of features of an ecological garden (cover crops, companion planting, mulching, attracting beneficials, etc). See the 3 minute video of our installation and another of building a raised bed.  Recommended Site Prep (pdf)
