Thanks to everyone who came out to our Annual Christmas Dinner!
Visit our booth at the Annual Home & Garden Show. We’ll be answering your gardening questions and providing information on pollinators, our upcoming plant sale on May 13th, and on a Master Gardener Training Course this Fall! As always, there will be an activity for the kids!
The Annual Home & Garden Show is sponsored by The Salem Leader and is located at the Washington County Fairgrounds, 118 N Fair Street, Salem IN 47167. Hours are Friday, April 27th, 5 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., and Saturday, April 28th, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Work is progressing on the transformation of the keyhole gardens into an educational butterfly garden. The flood had us rebuilding and left a few bricks damaged, but everything was recoverable and the plants should be in the beds by next week.
Be sure to join us on Thursday evening, 6:30 p.m., in the County Extension classroom as West Washington High School student, Griffin Packwood presents on “Grafting.”
Training is open to the public and we especially encourage those interested in becoming a Master Gardener to meet and learn with us.
Thursday’s training will be followed by our monthly business meeting and refreshments.
For our November meeting, Dusty Baker presented on Permaculture based on her move to Oahu, Hawai’i, in 2016. Dusty lived on a permaculture farm and attended a college that practiced permaculture, vermaculture, and aquaponics. Below is a slideshow of photos shared.
