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.
July 27 demonstrations will be:
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 it is ready, and how to use the finished product.
Taming Climbing Roses. Are your climbers out of control? Learn how to get your climbing rose onto your arbor or trellis to promote blooms.
Invasive Plant Table. Do you ask, what is this vine forming berries climbing all over my garden? Should I let English ivy climb up my trees? These plants are non-native invasive plants that are taking over our gardens and our forests. Come and see samples of these plants and learn how to reduce their spread.
Ergonomic Tools. Discover how to modify tools or purchase new tools that help gardeners garden longer.
Kids Corner. Family friendly gardening activities for the young at heart.
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!
