Please join us for a Spring Garden Education Series at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Saratoga County. Located at 50 West High Street, Ballston Spa, NY we have four different classes offered; two on April 27th and two on May 4th. Saturday April 27th the Master Gardener’s will be presenting “Takes a Few Simple Steps for Lawn Success” at 9:00 AM and then “The Good and Bad of Lawn Problems” at 10:45 AM. Saturday May 4th the “Vegetable Gardening Basics” class will begin at 9:00 AM with “What’s That I See” to follow at 10:45 AM. Each class is projected to be 1.5 hours.

“Take a Few Simple Steps for Lawn Success” will focus on mowing, fertilizing, and watering to make your lawn an environmental aspect. Following that class, “The Good and Bad of Lawn Problems” will provide further lawn education on winterkill, leafspot, chinch bugs, grubs, and more!

The class “Vegetable Gardening Basics” will provide tips on preparing and planning your garden, along with some tips on harvest and timing. “What’s That I See?” continues on to teach insect and disease problems, as well as what to look out for during the upcoming Spring Garden Season.

Light refreshments will be served and, as additional courtesies, soil pH testing will be available along with a variety of publications to purchase, and free handouts on gardening topics and pests. The cost of the series is as follows; $10 for each individual day, $15 for both. Drop-ins will be charged $15 per day. We ask for pre-registration and payments be submitted by April 22. Registration forms are available at the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Saratoga County’s office located at 50 West High Street, Ballston Spa, NY.
