New in 2022, The Learning Garden, located at the Cooperative Extension Office, 49 Mount Carmel Road will provide opportunities to Drop-In and Learn in the garden. Each month, selected gardens will offer demonstrations and programs, while all our gardens will be open to the public.
In addition, our Helpline desk will be open indoors from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for in-person consultations, where Extension Master GardenersSM will provide problem solving assistance. Feel free to bring questions and samples (plant and insect) to the Helpline desk during your visit to the Learning Garden.
September 28 demonstrations will be:
Compost: Basics of Composting: Learn to compost with a multi-bin system: what to use and what not to use, how to mix it, how to monitor the pile, when is it ready, and how to use the finished product.
Four Seasons: Dividing Perennials: Spread the wealth! More plants and no money spent. When and how to divide your perennials.
Pollinator: Getting a jump on next year: Fall seed starting.
Sun and Shade: Plant propagation: Plant propagation has so many forms: dividing bulbs, collecting seeds, stem cuttings, water and soil rooting. Come and learn some of these techniques.
Our gardens open at 9 a.m. and demonstration programs will run between 10 and 11 a.m. Come, walk around, and soak in our lovely gardens! Most programs are informal and continuous – exceptions are noted above.
Note: Almost all activities will be held outdoors, so please dress appropriately for the weather.
Registration is not required. Plan to Drop in and Learn!
