MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. — It’s time to get some “flower power” with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Orange County’s upcoming June virtual program hosted by the Master Gardeners. “Creating a Fragrance Garden & Extracting Fragrances” will be held Tuesday, June 8th, from 7:00 – 8:30 P.M. The goal is to create a collection of plants that are irresistible to your eyes and nose. Learn how to select extremely fragrant plants from which you can easily extract fragrance.
The session will include information on harvesting the blooms and/or leaves followed by a demonstration on extracting fragrances for a variety of at-home uses such as essential oils, pomades, hydrosols, and more. Senior Master Gardener Gerda Krogslund and Master Gardener Kimberly Marshall will be your guides on this sensory journey. We hope that you will join us for this Zoom presentation!
Pricing is available on a sliding scale. There is a suggested fee of $10 per participant or a $0 solidarity price for those who cannot pay. Gardening in Orange County subscribers receive a discounted price of $8.
