How to wrap up the season and look forward to next year

September 17, 2007


[FERNDALE] – Fine spring gardens start in the autumn, which is a good time to create and protect perennial beds, and to plant new bulbs and trees.  The fall also offers an opportunity to mulch, prune selectively, and, if the weather holds, repair the lawn.


Sullivan Renaissance will hold a seminar about “Fall Gardening” on Wednesday, October 3 at 7:00 p.m. at the CVI Building in Ferndale.  The program will look at how groups and individuals can prepare for the winter while getting a jump start on the next growing season.


The seminar will be lead by Vivian Multari-Ginsberg, an avid gardener with over 25 years experience with horticulture and landscaping in New York and Connecticut.  She studied at the New York Botanical Garden and Master Gardener Program in Connecticut.  She has always had organic vegetable gardens.  She is the Sullivan Renaissance Community Liaison, assisting projects with horticultural and natural resource needs. 


The focus of this seminar is for Sullivan Renaissance groups, but everyone is welcome to attend.  Those interested in learning more about Sullivan Renaissance are also invited.  Refreshments will be available.  Please RSVP by October 1.


Sullivan County communities have worked on over 85 projects since grants were awarded in March.  Now comes the task of preparing for autumn, winter and next year. 


Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.  Youth participation is supported in part with grants from the Louis R. Cappelli Foundation, and Bank of America Charitable Foundation.  Additional funding has been secured by NYS Senator John J. Bonacic and Assemblywoman Aileen M. Gunther.  For information about Sullivan Renaissance, visit or call 845-295-2445.
