The Fauquier Education Farm will offer a workshop on growing garlic Tuesday, June 30.

Free, open to all and requiring no registration, the session will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. at the farm at 8428 Meetze Road just southeast of Warrenton.

Called “Garlic: The Sweet Smell of Success,” the workshop “will showcase our garlic demonstration plot,” education farm Executive Director Jim Hankins said in a press release. “This will be an outdoor workshop, but for everyone's safety we will require all participants to wear facemasks.”

The Tuesday workshop marks the first one the farm has hosted since the popular series got suspended March because of the pandemic after just one session.

“We have three types of hard-necked garlic and will be discussing how to plant, care for and harvest this savory crop,” Mr. Hankins said. “It’s an excellent choice home gardeners and market farmers alike. And the deer don’t eat it.”

The education farm plans to conduct eight more workshops.
