[FERNDALE] – Learn about plant options and their placement in a garden to create a stunning appearance during a free gardening seminar offered by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Sullivan County and Sullivan Renaissance   on Wednesday, September 7 at 6:00 p.m. at the Gerald J. Skoda Education Center, 64 Ferndale-Loomis Road in Liberty.

This seminar will offer helpful tips for landscaping changes that will make visitors say wow! Kristin Porter, CCE Master Gardener Volunteer and Diana K. Weiner, Sullivan Renaissance Horticulture Coordinator, will help participants visualize their landscapes as future open air rooms.  They will present techniques including site assessment and standard design principles to enhance the appearance of residential and commercial outdoor spaces and create great experiences and curb appeal.

Participants are invited to bring a photograph of a project area to the class.  Instructors will provide design choices to help you transform your garden into an oasis that is bursting with colorful, well placed plants.

Everyone is welcome, however pre-registration is requested.  Refreshments will be served.
