AmeriCorps hosts 'DeWitt Park Wildlife Planting Project' in Batavia https://www.thebatavian.com/events/americorps-hosts-dewitt-park-wildlife-planting-project-in-batavia/14361 Genesee County AmeriCorps will host a planting project at Batavia's DeWitt Recreation Area, 119 Cedar St., on April 24 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Around 50 volunteers are needed.

The goal of this project is to remove invasive plant species from the park and to raise plants designed to reduce soil erosion, provide the wildlife with food and shelter, and give visitors something more aesthetically pleasing to look at.

Supplies and water will be available, but volunteers are encouraged to bring their own water as well.

The day will include activities for youth, and lunch will be provided.

Anyone interested in participating in or making a donation to this project should call the Genesee County Youth Bureau at 344-3960 and ask to speak to Lauren. Information is also available on Facebook (search "DeWitt Planting Project").

Garden Day Celebration & Plant Sale https://www.thebatavian.com/events/garden-day-celebration-plant-sale/5925 Presented by the Master Gardeners from Cornell Cooperative Extension of Wyoming County. 

Saturday, May 9th, 2009, from 9am to 12pm.  Join us under the big tent at Cornell Cooperative Extension, 401 North Main Street, Warsaw, NY..  There are demonstrations of Gourd Growing & Painting, Gladioli Growing & Arranging, a watercolor artist, Flower Pounding, and Garden Garnishes.

We will have free soil testing (ph), expert advice from Master Gardeners with over 160 years combined experience in plant science from hostas to growing potatoes, from shade plants to heirloom tomato plants, and from blueberries to pear trees. 

The Master Gardeners will have baked goods & coffee for sale along with perennials, annuals, herbs to numerous to count, Martha Washington Geraniums, many colors of ivy and other geraniums, lots of vegetable plants, hanging plants, and even Yukon Gold Seed Potatoes.  All for sale at low prices.  We sold 20 hanging baskets of Fuschia in the first hour last year.  Please call (585)-786-2251 for more information.

Many thanks go to the Arts Council for Wyoming County for sponsoring this event.  Without their help and the donations of countless others, the funding for the CCE and Master Gardener Educational programs would be severely limited.  We in Wyoming and Genesee Counties are lucky to have the Cornell Cooperative Extension's help and resources available to all gardeners, farmers, and lovers of flowers in our area.
