[LIBERTY] Sullivan Renaissance and Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County (CCESC) are hosting a free gardening seminar on June 7. The seminar, “Plant It”, will give tips on choosing the best plants and tools for your garden. CCESC Master Gardener Volunteers will teach horticulture basics and demonstrate how to use these skills in a garden project. They will demonstrate composting and mulching techniques, vegetable and flower garden planting techniques, and summer garden maintenance tasks.
Sullivan Renaissance’s Horticulture Program Manager, Diana K. Weiner, said “Seeing exactly what to do in a garden setting really helps to make the connection for people. We are grateful that CCESC has demonstration gardens and talented volunteers that can share their knowledge on site."
This is the second of two classes offered by the Master Gardener Volunteers and Sullivan Renaissance. It is not necessary to have attended the first class to join the second. The class will be held at the Gerald J. Skoda Extension Education Center and Teaching Garden, 64 Ferndale-Loomis Road in Liberty from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
Space is limited and pre-registration is requested. To register, visit SullivanRenaissance.org or call the Sullivan Renaissance office at 845-295-2445. Event details can also be found on the Sullivan Renaissance Facebook and Twitter pages.
