Victoria County Master Gardener Sandi Coleman will give a talk on Keyhole Gardening at 12 p.m. Tuesday, November 19 at the Aransas County office of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, 892 Airport Rd.
Part of the Master Gardener’s Brown Bag educational series, attendees are encouraged to bring a brown bag lunch to eat during the program. It is free and open to the public; no early sign-up required.
Keyhole gardening is a very sustainable way of growing vegetables while not using a great deal of water. A keyhole garden is usually a round raised bed, about waist-high with a compost pile in the center. The vegetables are planted around the compost pile, which provides nutrients and moisture to the plants. A notch in the circle provides access and gives the garden the appearance of a keyhole.
