Lunchtime Learning in Monticello with Sullivan Renaissance | Sep. 24, 2018
FERNDALE –Annual flowers will continue to look great all season with a good fertilizer schedule; some “pinching” and “deadheading”. Sullivan Renaissance will share tips and helpful information at its summer gardening seminar on Wednesday, July 6 at 6:00 p.m. in the CVI Center in Ferndale.
Anyone can grow head-turning baskets, containers and garden beds. Following these few simple tips will result in lower maintenance gardens and great looking plants.
“We will go out to the gardens at CVI to learn how to do these tasks! This information is timely and supportive for anyone interested in getting the most out of their gardens, said Diana K. Weiner, Sullivan Renaissance Horticulture Coordinator.
While offering valuable information for all gardeners, the seminar will be particularly helpful to the community volunteers who are beautifying the area’s gateways, houses of worship, public spaces, schools and libraries.
Many Sullivan County communities are preparing for the annual Sullivan Renaissance judging at the beginning of August. Judges travel from as far away as Canada to view the different projects throughout the county. Prizes, ranging from $1000 to $100,000, will be awarded at the Sullivan Renaissance Awards Ceremony on August 8 at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts.
Space for the seminar is limited and pre-registration is requested. Refreshments will be provided.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.
