Master Gardeners present Garden Talk Series

By on August 6, 2018

Genesee County Master Gardeners announce their monthly garden series, “Garden Talk.”  Taught by Master Gardeners, programs will be held from 12:15 to 12:45 p.m. on the first Tuesday of the month.  Bring your lunch to the CCE office at 420 East Main Street, Batavia and join the group.  This free series is open to the public.  Registration is not required.

On August 7 –  “Autumn Awesomeness.”  Fall is a great time to garden after so many of summer’s challenges are past. Late interest plants are important, but there’s more, and that “more” will make your garden sing year round.

September 4 – “Tips on Ticks.”  Find out which ticks you may find in your backyard or farther afield. Learn how to identify a tick, what diseases they may carry and how to protect yourself and your family from being bitten by a tick.

October 2  –  “A Witches Garden.”  Witches were once considered wise women and healers.  They used plants they grew or found in their environment to cure ills as well as cast spells. Explore the folklore and plants of the witch.

November 6  will conclude the “Garden Talk” year with a demonstration on how to make an outdoor greens display for the winter.  Get ideas for creating a container that can take you past the holidays and look good all winter.

Future topics and other Master Gardener events will be posted on the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Genesee County website at http://genesee.cce.cornell.edu/ and also on the Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/CCEofGenesee.  Contact 585-343-3040 x101 for more information about this or other CCE programs.
