Organic Gardening Seminar Tuesday At County Building
By Tom Mitchell

HARRISONBURG -The subject of organic gardening will be the focus of a meeting Tuesday at the Rockingham County Administration Building.

Gary Lantz, an organic beef-cattle, hog and feed farmer from Shenandoah County, will discuss organic gardening at 6:30 p.m. in the board room of the county administration building at 20 East Gay Street.

The meeting is a session of the Rockingham County chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation.
According to its Web site, the Price Foundation is a nonprofit charity founded in 1999 to promote human consumption of foods that include those organically grown.

Lantz, his wife and son run a 272-acre certified organic farm near Mount Jackson, which uses no chemical sprays or growth-enhancing hormones. Lantz, who raises and sells organically-grown grains, will address such topics as planting, chemical-free weed control, tools and other organic gardening techniques.
