Description: Join the NC Extension Master Gardener Volunteers of Guilford County for a lively and informative gardening presentation each month through the fall season. These “Lunch and Learn” sessions are all scheduled from 12:00 noon until 1:00 pm: no refreshments are provided, but participants are welcome to bring and eat lunch during the program. Take a mid-day break from your schedule and talk gardening with friends!

Does your indoor foliage collection look like an episode of “Desperate Houseplants”? Meeting their needs is not luck, or a talent you’re born with – just a little bit of information makes it easy and fun. The key is making the right selections, and learning a few simple steps to keep them thriving.
