It's a bit of a drive, but the GardenWise 2012 Workshop in York, Pennsylvania on Saturday, March 10th 2012 , from 8:00am to 3:30 pm, looks like it might be worth the trip.
Susan Reed, author of the award winning Energy-Wise Landscaping Design, will share ideas and tips you can easily incorporate into your landscape.
Dr. Michael Raupp from the University of Maryland will take you on a fascinating journey to learn “why bugs and plants make the world go round”.
In between you can attend sessions on growing vegetables sustainably, using cover crops in the garden, heirloom and open pollinated plants, biorational pesticides and beneficial insects, or native plants and their role in garden design.
Early bird registration (on or before February 21) is $49.00 and includes a full day of gardening talks, handouts, continental breakfast, and lunch. To register, call Kelly at 717-840-7408 and request a GardenWise brochure. Or go online to http://extension.psu.edu/york. Register early, as space is limited.
