[LIBERTY] – Learn about “Designing, Digging & Delegating!” during the last of three hands-on gardening trainings from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 4.
The free instructional class will be taught by Sullivan County Master Gardener Volunteers in the teaching garden at the Gerald Skoda Education Center, 64 Ferndale-Loomis Road in Liberty.
Sullivan Renaissance and Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) of Sullivan County are holding the trainings to assist individuals who want to volunteer but aren’t sure how to help with community gardens in their hometowns.
Training space is limited and pre-registration is requested for the class. Refreshments will be provided. Those who successfully complete all three classes will receive a completion certificate and a special gift from Sullivan Renaissance.
Attendees have been learning the basics of caring for a garden from start to finish – and will be able to roll up their sleeves to work in their own gardens and to help at nearby community projects. “Soil, Water & Sun!” was held on April 2 and “Weeds, Shoots & Flowers!” on May 7.
Gardening projects in many communities throughout Sullivan County were announced by Sullivan Renaissance in April. Each of the organizations receiving a grant relies entirely on volunteer support to meet its goals. All of them can use additional help.
