Master Gardener Fall Plant Sale, Oct 5

IMG_4794

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.

DATE/TIME:
Saturday, October 5, 2019 / 9am – 12pm

LOCATION:
Cornell Cooperative Extension Columbia & Greene Counties
Extension Education Center
479 NY-66

Delicious baked goods will stock the bakery café along with freshly brewed coffee, tea, water, and juices.  Tables and chairs will be set up for patrons who would like to socialize on the back lawn of the library while enjoying a muffin or cookie.  You can also take some goodies home to enjoy later on.

50/50 raffle tickets for $3 each or 4 tickets for $10 will be available with the winner’s name drawn at 1pm.  The lucky ticket holder takes half of the money collected for the raffle and the library takes the other half. Tickets are now being sold at the library and you don’t need to be present on May 18th to win.
