Name: Cass County Master Gardener's Spring Garden Seminar, "Garden Inspiration: Old and New"
Date: March 7, 2020
Time: 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM CST
Event Description:
This year’s event, “Garden Inspiration Old & New” is a half day seminar designed to provide inspiration for discovering what’s new in the garden and appreciation for the heirlooms that continue to delight gardeners. The event will feature two guest speakers. Kathy Johnson, of “Flowers For You” will kick off the morning with a presentation on growing your own cut flowers. Kathy will share her knowledge of floral design and tips for selecting and growing flowers for your own bouquets. The second speaker is Cody Egan from the Seed Savers Exchange in Decorah, Iowa. Cody will teach attendees about heirloom plants and how we preserve them. Cody believes that heirloom seeds have the ability to reconnect us to a specific time and place, a certain soil and season during which that seed, and the memories associated with it, were grown. In addition to the guest speakers, the event will feature 60 minutes of “lightning learning” where attendees will have the opportunity to rotate between short presentations on topics such as Hostas, Small Space Gardening, Soil Testing, Propagating Succulents, at What’s new at the Garden Center and more topics to be added. “Garden Inspiration Old and New” will be at the Cass County Community Center. Register by March 1st and plan to join the Cass County Master Gardeners for the Spring Garden Seminar, “Garden Inspiration Old and New” on Saturday, March 7th.
