Improve Your Garden

Goodhue County Master Gardeners are proud to co-sponsor another excellent Red Wing Community Education Program on September 27th, 2011, from 7-8 pm at in the Red Wing High School's Courtyard CafĂ©.

Dr. Albert "Bud" Markhart, a professor at the University of Minnesota will discuss soil improvement techniques that result in healthier plants, more produce, fewer weeds, less watering and much less work. Professor Markhart currently advises 13 environmental horticulture majors at the U of MN. He pioneered the University's organic horticulture curriculum and inspired students to create Cornercopia, a one-acre plot of certified organic land that raises over 100 varieties of vegetables on the St. Paul campus.

The registration fee is only $8 and you can sign up on the Red Wing Community Ed Website at https://ssl.dwebsite.com/secure2/ce_RedWing/php/public.php or by calling Community Education offices at (651) 385-4565. For more information, contact Master Gardener Karen O'Rourke at Korourke3348@gmail.com.
