Master Gardeners to Teach Latest Garden Design Theories
Putnam County property owners are invited to attend Cornell Cooperative Extension’s 2017 Spring Garden School. Extension educators and Master Gardener Volunteers will teach how to evaluate your property with a critical eye so you can make planting decisions that are site-appropriate and eco-friendly, incorporating current research. Tuition includes materials.
Attendees will learn about soil microbe management, Hugelkultur composting, plant communities, matrix planting and the New Perennial Movement (exemplified by the New York City Highline). The emphasis will be on using native plants that are beautiful as well as attractive to pollinators and beneficial insects. The day will also include sessions on how to manage the soil and water on your property for maximum benefit to you and our ecosystem.
