This year, agents and volunteers around the state will be hosting three day-long regional workshops to enable as many MGs as possible to learn and share a little closer to home.
The first of these regional workshops will be in the eastern region and will be hosted by the Cumberland County Master Gardener Association. So, spread the word and join us at the Plateau Research and Education Center on Thursday, June 8th, 2017.
The whole day on June 8th will be spent in the beautiful UT Gardens, Crossville: Plateau Discovery Gardens. Begun in 2005, the UT,C:PDG has grown into a lovely, regionally appropriate demonstration garden that showcases not only horticultural plants and techniques but also a collaboration of CCMGA volunteers with UT Extension and AgResearch that has impressive impact in the community.
Educational sessions for the day include:
Managing aquatic weeds in home ponds (Creig Kimbro)
Dogwood trees and managing diseases in the home landscape (Dr. Mark Windham)
Garden photography (Beth Willis)
How to begin and manage demonstration gardens (CCMGA team)
Tennessee Smart Yards (Dr. Andrea Ludwig)
Garden Detective- Why did my plant die? (Carol Reese)
The Master Gardener role in horticulture research (Dr. Natalie Bumgarner and Fred Mullen)
Designing and using the KinderGarden (CCMGA team)
Wagon tours of the Plateau Research and Education Center
We look forward to seeing you on June 8th!
