FORESTBURGH – Individuals who would like to learn to garden using deer resistant annuals and perennials are invited to a free “Celebrating Sullivan Spaces” class in Forestburgh on Saturday, June 25 from 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon. Hands-on instruction will be given at the recently renovated gardens maintained by volunteers and the Town of Forestburgh, a participant in this year’s Sullivan Renaissance Maintenance Support grant program.
This is the second event of the 2016 “Celebrating Sullivan Spaces” campaign, which promotes education and community engagement in Sullivan County’s public spaces. All events take place in parks and gardens that are cared for by volunteers.
The class will be held at the Forestburgh Town Hall located off Route 42 at 332 King Road in Forestburgh. No gardening experience is necessary. Gloves and tools will be available but individuals may bring their own gardening tools if they have them. Refreshments will be provided.
To RSVP for “Deer Resistant Gardening” and to learn more about upcoming community events, including the third Celebrating Sullivan Spaces in Livingston Manor on July 23, contact Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2445 or visit SullivanRenaissance.org
Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.
