Garden Talk at Cornell Extension is the first Tuesday of the month starting Aug. 7

Press release:

Join the Genesee County Master Gardeners for our monthly garden series, “Garden Talk.”

Taught by Master Gardeners, programs will be held from 12:15 to 12:45 p.m. on the first Tuesday of the month. Bring your lunch to the CCE office at 420 E. Main St, Batavia and join us.

This free series is open to the public. Registration is not required.

On Aug. 7 check out “Autumn Awesomeness.” Fall is a great time to garden after so many of summer's challenges are past.

If you'd like a garden filled with Autumn Awesomeness, we have a few ideas to get you started right away. Late interest plants are important, but there's more, and that "more" will make your garden sing year round.

Sept. 4 drop in for “Tips on Ticks.” Learn about which ticks you may find in your backyard or farther afield. With tick encounters on the rise learn how to identify a tick, what diseases they may carry and how to protect yourself and your family from being bitten by a tick.

Oct. 2 finds us exploring “A Witch's Garden.” Witches were once considered wise women and healers.

They used plants they grew or found in their environment to cure ills as well as cast spells. You, too, may have your very own witch's garden...come explore the folklore and plants of the witch.

On Nov. 6 we will wrap up the Garden Talk year with a demonstration on how to make an outdoor greens display for the winter. Get ideas for a creating a container that can take you past the holidays and look good all winter.

Future topics and other Master Gardener events will be posted on the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Genesee County website here. Contact 343-3040, ext. 101, for more information about this or other CCE programs.
