The Communal Garden: Garlic 101

This is a community gardening class taught by the Conservatory’s Growing to Green Coordinator, Sean McKay. Classes in The Communal Garden series teach gardeners skills that can be used in community gardens or to support their community through gardening. They are low-cost in an effort to advance gardening skills in our communities.

The series is a part of the Conservatory’s Growing to Green program, which supports and develops community gardens across Central Ohio.

Make growing garlic a fun and easy practice every year in your garden. Learn the when, where, and how questions, along with proper maintenance and harvest practices. Braiding helps garlic to last longer in storage, and is a more aesthetically pleasing option than throwing your bulbs in a mesh bag.
