Madison County Master Gardener Association hosts school in Anderson

RUSHVILLE — The Madison County Master Gardeners Association will hold its Indiana Garden School II in Anderson on Saturday, April 6, 2013. It will be held at the Madison Park Church of God on 6607 Providence Drive (just south off of the I-69 and SR 109 exit (226), then 1 mile west of Menards). This is an outstanding facility with plenty of room for breakout sessions and is very accessible.

Keynote speaker is Joe Stasey who is a Hamilton County Master Gardener and Tree Steward. If you have a tree question, you don’t want to miss hearing Joe speak and get your answer. He is followed by a great lineup of other speakers that day. Roy Ballard will cover vegetable gardening and gardening for pollination while Karen Lackey will inspire us to creatively cook what we harvest from the garden. Brian MacGowan will share his knowledge on wildlife backyard habitats and controlling wildlife damage around the yard as well as Diane Shafer sharing some wildlife which she has rehabitated. There’s even sessions for those gardeners who want to improve their landscapes with wildflowers (Kevin Tungesvick), have environmentally friendly lawns and/or have 9 months of color with flowering trees and shrubs (Steve Mayer). We are very fortunate to have these speakers and you will not want to miss this opportunity to add to your gardening knowledge.

All skill levels

Four breakout sessions are planned, with each session having five different topics to choose from. Lectures and discussions will be held for gardeners with any level of skill, experience or ability. You will be able to get all of your questions answered. Topics on introductory gardening and techniques as well as learning opportunities for the more advanced gardener will be available. Along with a great program are a drawing, an auction and a variety of vendor displays and supplies from several of the top vendors.

You will have a chance to meet and informally visit with gardeners from across the state. Folder pickup starts at 8 a.m. (EST) with the program starting promptly at 9 a.m. and concluding at 3:30 p.m. Registration fees will be $30 per individual or $40 per family (lunch included). To guarantee a spot for yourself, your registration form should be received by March 27, 2013. Pre-registration is strongly advised.
