Master Gardener summer webinar

August 5, 2012
Reinbeck Courier

The Iowa Master Gardener program is once again offering a series of summer webinars. The 2012 series titled "Garden Goodness" will be hosted by Iowa State University Extension county offices on the fourth Tuesday of the month, May through August.

Each session will provide information about vegetable gardening, but from a variety of perspectives. "We selected 'Garden Goodness' as our theme for the 2012 series because of the current public interest in growing food," said Jennifer Bousselot, Iowa Master Gardener and webinar series coordinator. "We want to introduce our participant's to as many aspects of growing food as we can during these sessions."

The last class, presenter and topic for the 2012 series is:

August 28, 6:30-8:30 p.m. Angela Tedesco Top Ten Sustainable Gardening Tips from Turtle Farm. Tedesco is owner of Turtle Farm, an organic vegetable, fruit and herb CSA near Granger, Iowa.

The series, in its third year, is offered by Iowa Master Gardener program in response to requests for more Iowa gardening educational opportunities. The session is open to all interested gardeners; participants are not required to have completed Master Gardener training to attend, however the session will fulfill Master Gardener continuing education requirements.

Grundy County Extension and Grundy County Master Gardeners will be offering the webinar series at the Grundy County Extension Office at 703 F Avenue, Suite 1, Grundy Center. There is no cost to attend the sessions but we do ask that you call and register so we have enough seating and program information. To register or for more information call the Grundy County Extension Office at 319-824-6979.
