Workshops and Special Events for the Home Gardener, Summer 2012

Open House and Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Walk and Talk in the Native Plant Teaching and Demonstration Garden

Wednesday, June 20, 6-8 p.m. • Free

Join IPM Extension Specialist Dr. Brian Kunkel, Horticulture Educator Carrie Murphy, and the Master Gardeners in the Native Plant Teaching and Demonstration Garden for a plant, pest, and beneficial insect walk.

Green Invaders

Thursday, July 12, 6-8 p.m.

Rob Medicus • $15

What are those vines growing in my back yard? Are those flowers in the woods I see, weeds? Learn about the plants that have “invaded” Delaware from other continents, and why you should care.  This workshop begins with an introduction to the invasive plants and finishes with a relaxing and informative plant walk on the James F. Hall trail behind the Cooperative Extension office.

Pollinators in the Garden

Tuesday, August 14, 4-6 p.m.

Susan Foster and Jane Murphy • $15

How does your garden grow? A so-so performance may mean that you need the additional assistance of nature’s pollinators – hummingbirds, bees, bats, butterflies, and beetles. Learn how pollination takes place and how to attract beneficial native pollinators to your home garden. Workshop will include a tour of the Vegetable Teaching and Demonstration Garden.

Day in the Garden

Saturday, August 25, 1-3 p.m. • Free, and for the entire family!

Master Gardener and Master Food Educators will be available in the Vegetable Teaching and Demonstration Garden to answer questions and share a taste of the harvest.
