Kawartha Lakes Public Library offers a Spring Gardening workshop

Filed under: ,
May 2, 2017 - Due to the success of the event last year, Kawartha Lakes Public Library, in partnership with the Lindsay & District Master Gardeners once again presents a spring gardening workshop to kick-off the gardening season. "An Introduction to Home Vegetable & Herb Gardening" will be held at the Lindsay Branch Library on Saturday, May 20 from 10:15am to 11:30am.

The workshop, which covers gardening basics including: why grow your own, where to grow, what to grow, how to grow and gardening resources, is intended for gardening novices but will also serve as a useful refresher for more experienced gardeners. Master Gardeners Christine Halbot and Jack Kyle will be on hand to answer any gardening questions.

Master Gardeners of Ontario Inc. is an independent non-profit organization dedicated to helping home gardeners. Master Gardeners in the Province of Ontario are experienced gardeners who have studied horticulture extensively and continue to upgrade their skills through technical training. With this training and continuing education, Master Gardeners provide expert horticultural advice to the general public.

Pre-registration for this event is encouraged by calling 705-324-5632 or you can also visit the Lindsay Branch Library to reserve your place. The first 40 registrants will receive a free tomato seedling and a package of seeds. The tomatoes will be very short-season varieties from Iceland, grown by presenter and Master Gardner Christine Halbot. You must be present at the workshop to receive the seedling and seeds.

Support for this presentation comes from HKPR Health Unit's Healthy Communities Fund and Kawartha Lakes Food Coalition.
