[LIBERTY] – Individuals who want to volunteer in their communities but aren’t sure how to garden are invited to attend a series of free hands-on instructional trainings. The first of three classes will be held on Wednesday, April 1 at the Gerald Skoda Extension Education Center in Liberty.
Individuals may attend one or all of the sessions. “Soil, Water & Sun!” is on April 1; “Weeds, Shoots & Flowers!” on May 6; and “Designing, Digging & Delegating!” on June 3. Everyone who wants to learn how to garden is welcome.
All classes will be held from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Wednesdays at Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) Sullivan County in both the classroom and the teaching garden located at 64 Ferndale-Loomis Road.
Attendees will learn the basics of caring for a garden from start to finish – and be able to roll up their sleeves to work in their own gardens and to help at nearby community projects. Those who successfully complete all three classes will receive a completion certificate and a special gift from Sullivan Renaissance.
The classes will be taught by Diana K. Weiner, Horticulture Coordinator for Sullivan Renaissance, and Sullivan County Master Gardener Volunteers, led by Susan Dollard, the Master Gardener Program Coordinator.
Training space is limited and pre-registration is requested for each class. Refreshments will be provided. For more information or to register, contact Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2445 or www.sullivanrenaissance.org.
Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.
