Parents and grandparents – this class is for you! Gather ideas to create a kid-friendly corner in your garden. Learn how to make a simple pebble pond to attract wildlife, grow enticing “smells”, construct a vegetable tunnel, and much more! Free gift bag of several types of seeds to the first 20 sets of kids and parents (or grand parents, or uncles or aunts!)
Sat., May 29 at 11:00am - Advanced Vegetable Gardening, for the Beginner!
Listen to Bill Bird’s great tips on how to begin a garden that will make you the envy of the neighborhood. You’d be amazed at the amount of produce he grows in his side yard, and he’ll show you how to do it, too. This will be a new and different presentation than he gave last year. A bonus this year: everyone attending is invited to take a selfguided tour of several local gardens after the class. See how seasoned gardeners do it: they’re already well into the gardening season.
