LIVINGSTON MANOR– Individuals who would like to learn about invasive plants and their alternatives are invited to a free “Celebrating Sullivan Spaces” gardening class in Livingston Manor on Saturday, July 23 from 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon. By removing invasive weeds and planting the right plants, honeybees, butterflies and other pollinators will be drawn to your gardens. Hands-on instruction will be given at the gardens maintained by volunteers and members of Livingston Manor Renaissance, a participant in this year’s Sullivan Renaissance Maintenance Support grant program.
This is the third 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 taught by Master Gardener Volunteer Kristin Porter and held in Renaissance Park at the intersection of Main and Pearl Streets in Livingston Manor. 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 “Invasive Plants & Native Alternatives” and to learn more about upcoming community events 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 with support from Bold Gold Media Group/Thunder 102, Fisher Mears Associates and WSUL/WVOS.
