The first education day of the 2009 Growing Season will be Sunday, June 7th at 3pm.
During this first educational session our University of Connecticut Master Gardeners will be discussing:
How to have a successful vegetable garden using compost and perennials.
Marty will discuss the importance of having a compost pile near the garden, how it is used in gardening, what to put in the compost pile and what to keep out of the compost pile.
Jennifer and Trish will discuss how perennials tie into a healthy garden by attracting beneficial insects, deterring pests and adding color and multiseason interest to the landscape. We will discuss what it takes to maintain the compost pile and the perennials throughout the growing season to make them a permanent structure in the garden year after year with minimal work.
Come join us and become a better gardener. Knowledge is power!
