A Plastic-Free Garden?

It’s not just climate change. We’re destroying the living biome with pollution. And even organic gardeners pollute. We use plastics; some of us use lots of plastics. How do we stop? What do we do without them? This workshop explores these questions with concrete ideas about substitutes for season extension (those hoop houses, that row cover, that shade cloth), mulch (ground cloth and black plastic strawberry beds), raising seedlings (plastic flats and pots), irrigation (drip lines, emitters, hoses – the hard one!), recycling (where? how?), and more.
