Saturday in the Garden

Date: Sep 29, 2012 – Sep 29, 2012
Time: 09:00am – 10:00am

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Dutchess County will host new events this year for participants to gain hands-on experience working side by side with Master Gardeners in the Demonstration Gardens at the Farm and Home Center in Millbrook. Activities tailored for each season will train adults on garden tasks and teach children about critters that visit their garden. Called “Saturday in the Garden,” topics have been chosen that encourage friends and families to garden together throughout the year.

This session is called “Harvesting Time”. Adults will learn about winter garden preparation and tool care; children will harvest potatoes and create winter bird feeders.

Reservations are encouraged. In case of rain, the event will be moved to the next day at the same time. Please dress appropriately and bring your own garden gloves and insect repellent if needed. All other supplies will be provided. A donation of $10 is suggested. Email Nancy Halas or call 845-677-8223 ×115 for information and/or registration.
