The Monadnock Food Co-op will hold a workshop titled “How to Grow a Totally Organic Garden” on April 14 with author Celeste Longacre.

The event will be held at the Railroad Square Senior Housing Conference Room, 49 Community Way, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Participants will learn about the tools they need to plant and maintain a garden, including soil preparation, planting, weeding, thinning and harvesting.

Longacre is an accomplished gardener who has been growing most of her family’s vegetables for over 35 years. She preserves the garden’s bounty by canning, freezing, drying, and fermenting it as well as storing her produce in a root cellar.
