The Linn County Master Gardeners will present a series of workshops this April at the Ladd Library. These free workshops include information on a variety of spring gardening topics. Each program is at 6:30 pm and registration is not required.
April 4: Raised Bed Gardening
No space for a garden? You can plant enough vegetables in a 4’x4’ garden to feed 2 people or 4’x8’ for a family of 4. Hate the weeding and bug control? Having trouble getting up from the ground? Raised bed gardening is for you. Learn the how-to’s with Deb Walser.
April 11: Herbs for the Butterflies
Judy Bemer will match herbs to butterflies in our area. She will share a couple of projects that are easy to make and will also provide herbal treats.
April 18: Spring Garden Maintenance
Wake your Landscape up; it’s spring. Time to get your yard, landscape and gardens ready for another growing season, but how do I start?” Join Master Gardener Wil Carew as he covers what to do, when to do it, and why!
April 25: Your Backyard is for the Birds
The presentation will concentrate on the needs of birds and what will attract them to your yard. The focus will be on the most popular birds for Iowans. The year round enjoyment of birds is the objective.
