ITHACA, N.Y. — Deer can cause enormous damage to home gardens, consuming some of our favorite vegetables and ornamental plants. To help gardeners meet this challenge, Cornell Cooperative Extension Tompkins County will offer an online class, “Strategies for Gardening with Deer” on Tuesday, June 15, from 6:00-8:00pm. Taught by experienced garden designer and educator Mila Fournier and Tompkins County Master Gardener volunteers, the class will share strategies for how to co-exist with deer while still having a beautiful and productive garden. Topics to be covered include deer deterrents, and suggested choices of flowers, shrubs and trees that have been resistant to deer browsing in our area.
