Tips & Advice for Essential Gardening Tasks this Autumn

September 4, 2013

[LIBERTY] – The change of seasons is just around the corner. To help with the transition an instructional training that encourages volunteers to be comfortable with gardening tasks will be held on Wednesday, September 11 at Cablevision Center in Liberty.  Sullivan Renaissance is holding this free class in cooperation with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Sullivan County (CCE). 

At this “Fall Gardening Seminar,” CCE Master Gardeners and Sullivan Renaissance staff will give instruction on the following:

  • Planting flowers and spring flowering bulbs
  • How to divide perennials
  • Tips and advice for composting and other essential fall gardening tasks.

Sullivan Renaissance Horticulture Coordinator Diana K. Weiner will also share information about opportunities to become involved in community gardening projects for the Sullivan Renaissance Early Admission to the 2014 Grant Program. 

Sullivan Renaissance funded endeavors in 41 communities for 2013.  Each of the organizations received a grant that relied entirely on volunteer support to meet its goals.  Design and plant selection help is available now for next year’s program.

Space is limited and pre-registration is requested for the classes.  Refreshments will be provided.  

For more information or to register, contact Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2445 or
