[LIBERTY] – Learn about plant choices and how to manage weeds during a gardening workshop offered by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Sullivan County and Sullivan Renaissance on Wednesday, May 4. This is the second of three classes to familiarize individuals with plants for community and personal gardens.
The class will be held from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at CCE’s demonstration gardens located at the Gerald J. Skoda Education Center, 64 Ferndale-Loomis Road in Liberty. Space is limited and pre-registration is requested. Refreshments will be provided.
Attendees will learn best use and location for flowers and vegetables; and should wear comfortable shoes for an outdoor session that will include: pruning, identifying weeds and a review of what tools are needed for the job.
The class is being taught by Diana K. Weiner, Horticulture Coordinator for Sullivan Renaissance, and CCE Sullivan County Master Gardener Volunteers, led by Dayna Gaeta, CCE Community Horticulture Program Educator.
A final training in the series, “Digging & Delegating!” will be held on June 1. Those who successfully complete all three classes will receive a completion certificate and a special gift from Sullivan Renaissance.
Gardening projects in many communities throughout Sullivan County were announced by Sullivan Renaissance on Thursday, April 21. Each of the organizations receiving a grant relies entirely on volunteer support to meet its goals. All of them can use additional help.
