Vegetable Garden Planting It's only February, but here in Charlotte, it's time to start thinking about planting your spring vegetable garden. Whether you're a first time gardener or a seasoned pro, you may have questions about soil conditions, the best way to go organic, or figure out whether a raised garden is best for you. We'll have a panel of experts to talk about all of those things as well as some programs that promote healthy eating through home, school and community gardens. Guests Don Rosenberg - Master Gardener and regular gardening guest on WCNC Charlotte Today (his website Instant Organic Garden) Don Boekelheide - Organic gardener Megan Dean - Registered Dietician in the Health Promotion Program at the Mecklenburg County Health Department. She's heading up the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Coalition at the Health Department, where home, school and community gardens are a priority.
