Planting time’s coming: Frontier Extension offers garden classes at Overbrook

With spring on its way, Shannon Blocker, Frontier Extension District horticulture agent, and Bill Shipp, Extension Master Gardener volunteer, will offer two gardening classes in March at the Overbrook Public Library.

Gardening 101 will be held at 7 p.m. March 2, 2017. Want to plant a garden? Do you know where to start? During this session, Blocker and Shipp will discuss the basics of gardening such as soil preparation, garden layout, planting dates, and harvest techniques. By the end of the night you will know how to set up your garden, what to do before planting, and how to care for your garden throughout the summer.

At 7 p.m. March 30, 2017, the garden experts will talk about gardening problems and solutions. Gardeners will learn about some of the most common problems, how to prevent them, and what to do to treat them when they occur.
