Learn how to grow fruit and vegetables in pots at SCC Farm to Table Event on Feb. 10

Spartanburg Community College will present a Farm To Table Event on February 10 featuring renowned gardening experts Peggy Cornett, plant curator for Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson in Charlottesville, VA  and Aaron Bertelsen, horticulturalist for Great Dixter in England.

Open to the public, the event at SCC’s Downtown Campus will feature two hourlong lectures and lunch. All attendees will receive a copy of Betelsen’s new book, Grow Fruit and Vegetables in Pots, which champions the developing trend in small and home gardening. Proceeds will benefit the Horticulture program at Spartanburg Community College.

“Younger people don’t really want to dig in the dirt at home. They would rather go to a city park and enjoy the facilities there,” says certified Master Gardener Linda Cobb. “The senior population is done digging in the dirt and they’re looking for an easier option. That’s why growing fruit and vegetables in pots is so on trend.”
