As we work with women to plant the seeds of a strong financial future, we want to take advantage of the promise of warmer days ahead to learn how to literally plant the seeds for a bountiful vegetable garden. We learned the basics of starting and maintaining a thriving vegetable garden from Lifetime Master Gardener, Gretel Anspach.
Gretel Anspach is a Trustee of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, a Lifetime Master Gardener with the Massachusetts Master Gardener Association, and a recently-retired systems engineer for Raytheon. She won the MMGA Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016. Gretel established and maintains a 20,000 square foot food production garden that has provided fresh produce to the Marlboro and Maynard Food Pantries for the last ten years.
