Master Gardener Fall Plant Sale, Oct 5


The Cornell Cooperative Extension of Columbia and Greene Counties is the organizer of a Fall Plant Sale, Workshop and Garden Advice event happening on Saturday, October 5.

Locally-grown perennials will be available for sale. Due to the invasive jumping worm occurrences reported in both counties and the lack of a proven, researched-based solution to the problem, this event will be strictly plant sales as opposed to swaps conducted in prior years. Master Gardener Volunteers will be using best practices to provide both annual and perennials grown from seed in sterile soils to prevent further broadcast of worm cocoons into our soils.

Master Gardeners will be available to answer gardening questions and preform pH tests on garden soil samples. The cost is $2.00 for first sample and $1.00 for each additional sample.

A hands on workshop about Putting the Garden to Bed will be held at 10:30 am and Winterizing Your Garden Tools will be held at 11:00 am.

Saturday, October 5, 2019 / 9am – 12pm
