MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. — As cooler weather approaches, it is time to get creative while continuing to stay safe. Please join Cornell Cooperative Extension Orange County Master Gardener Volunteers Nancy Faust, Brooke Moore and Nilda Ramos on Thursday, September 24th for a live workshop online via Zoom. In this ‘Take and Make’ virtual workshop you will create a lovely wreath to brighten your home or to give as a gift! There is more to fall than pumpkins and corn stalks!
This Zoom workshop will enable participants to safely create a beautiful autumn wreath from natural dried flowers, leaves and other fall themed items. Participants will be able to pick up the wreath materials for this project on Tuesday, September 22nd at Cornell Cooperative Extension Orange County’s office building in Middletown and at the Armory in Newburgh. Participants will need their own hot glue gun, glue and pruning shears.
The September 24th Zoom session will begin with a demonstration and techniques. Then attendees will work together in small Zoom groups with a Master Gardener Volunteer to assist while they create their own beautiful wreaths. Join us for a great family project!
