The Learning Garden presents:
Extending the Season
Wednesday, October 9, 2019
9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
NC Cooperative Extension
Buncombe County Center
49 Mount Carmel Road
Presenters: The Learning Garden Team of Extension Master GardenerSM Volunteers
The Learning Garden consists of five individual gardens: Gateway, FourSeason, Rose, Sun-to-Shade, and Vegetable, each with its own set of challenges and rewards. We also have a Composting Demonstration site. Come join Master Gardeners for two hours of teaching and in-garden demonstrations as we explore seasonal activities, problems, solutions, and successes for Extending the Season in the garden.
It is the time to protect and extend the cool season vegetable garden while you begin putting your perennial gardens to bed. Visit our FourSeason garden for ideas on plants with winter interest. Talk to us about choosing and establishing cover crops and about cutting back plants. Visit our Compost Demonstration site for information on making compost. Fall is also the time to review and evaluate how your garden performed. Find out how we assess The Learning Garden and apply the concepts to your own garden. Fall is the start of the next garden cycle—planning for spring.
The day begins at 9 a.m. with a brief orientation after which you can visit the different garden sites and talk with Master Gardeners in those gardens.
The program is free but registration is requested by calling 828-255-5522.
