Master Gardeners’ spring workshop to return

Master Gardeners’ spring workshop to return Master Gardeners’ spring workshop to return

After foregoing last year’s spring workshop due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Harrison County Master Gardeners have planned its annual workshop for Saturday, April 24, from 9 a.m. to noon. The group’s plant sale will immediately follow.

During his presentation “How We Love Petunias,” Master Gardener Darrell Voelker will share how he keeps the hanging baskets of petunias in downtown Corydon each year so beautiful.

Other classes for adults and teens will be “Health Benefits of Vegetables,” “Basic Herb Gardening” and “Planting Plugs, Cuttings and Seeds.”

Children in kindergarten through sixth grade will have multiple hands-on and craft activities.

“Our goal for the workshop this year is to provide a safe environment where we can encourage adults, teens and children to spend time outdoors and grow their own vegetables and flowers,” said Wanda Phillips, one of the master gardeners. “Due to safety procedures and guidelines, we will be restricted to a limited number of people in each room, so pre-registration is a requirement.”

Registration will begin Monday and end April 17 unless classes fill up prior to that date.

Cost is $5 per person and must be paid with a completed registration form.

For more information or a registration form, contact Phillips by email at [email protected] or send a text to 502-551-5281.
