Description:

Spring and summer gardens are beautiful, but fall is a wonderful season for gardening in the Piedmont! This is the perfect time for planting, transplanting, and starting fall-flowering containers - after the long hot summer, cooler temperatures make it easier on the plants and on the gardener too. Simple seasonal chores like winterizing tools are also on the list, to help you be prepared for future gardening seasons.

To register, visit: go.ncsu.edu/gcces_lunch_and_learn

Join Guilford County’s Extension Master Gardener Volunteers 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!

Programs are designed to be approximately one hour long but may run slightly over depending on questions and discussion - which are encouraged!

You are welcome to sign up for as many classes as you like. However, classes on the same subject will be the same.
