Learn How to Keep Your Garden Healthy

August 19, 2013

[HARRIS] – A free on-site training to teach prospective volunteers about gardening will be held by Sullivan Renaissance on Wednesday, August 21 from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Woodland Wilding Garden at Catskill Regional Medical Center at 68 Bushville Harris Road in Harris.

For those who wonder what to do with struggling gardens or how to keep plants healthy – this is an opportunity to learn where to begin, what to do, and how to do it.  No gardening experience is required for this training.

“First Aid for Flowers will take place outdoors, so you can really see and understand the gardening triage we will discuss,” said Sullivan Renaissance Horticulture Coordinator Diana K. Weiner, the instructor for the series.

The class is part of a series that Sullivan Renaissance has been holding to assist individuals who want to volunteer with community projects but aren’t sure what to do.  Past trainings can be viewed online at  Free classes will continue on a monthly basis until the hard frost.

Sullivan Renaissance has funded public and community gardens since 2001.  Each year grants are awarded to organizations that rely entirely on volunteer support to meet their beautification goals.  All of them can use additional help and volunteers.  

Pre-registration is requested.  For more information, contact Sullivan Renaissance at 295-2445 or email

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.  Sponsors include Bold Gold Media Group/Thunder 102, Country Yossi Productions, FisherMears Associates, Kristt Company, Large Media, Robert Green Dealerships, Sullivan County Democrat, The River Reporter, Thompson Sanitation, and WSUL/WVOS.
