JAMESTOWN, N.Y. — Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County Master Gardeners Program is inviting the public to share some time at their new demonstration gardens for an evening of learning and asking questions on a noteworthy garden topic. Our demonstration gardens are where the master gardeners test garden techniques proven by the Cornell Cooperative Extension and Cornell University Life Sciences and Agriculture.
The ‘Evening in the Garden’ presents the final free workshop series of the season. Join us to learn about the topic of planning for the autumn garden activities. Master Gardeners Emilee Gifford, Faith Carlson and host, Wickie Stapleton will talk about the growing and care of garlic, seed saving techniques, making vegetable powder for cooking, and preparing to put the garden to bed for the winter.
