GardenFest is Coming in May!



Think Spring!

The Penn State Master Gardeners of Pike County are hosting an all-day “GardenFest 2015” gardening symposium on Saturday, May 2, 2015 at the Pike County Training Center, in Lords Valley, PA from 9 a.m. to 3.00 p.m. Be sure to save the date!

· Catherine Bennet and Les Ferguson, Orange County. NY Master Gardeners will demonstrate tools that will save your backs and knees and keep the fun in gardening.

· Susan Dollard, Master Gardener Coordinator of Sullivan County, NY will teach how to garden in a woodland area.

· Ed Knittle and other Carbon County, PA Master gardeners will help you know good bugs from bad ones.

· Jean Kolojejchick and Roseann Nardone, Luzerne County PA, Master Gardeners, will detail how to add garden plants, structures and accessories to express your personality.

· Tom Manza, owner of the Manza Family Farm and Nursery will share what’s new in landscaping materials that are deer resistant, colorful and good for the environment.

· Bonnie Morgan, horticultural professional will share practical ideas that will increase your vegetable yield and save money, too.



The registration fee of $30.00 includes the keynote speaker and choice of breakaway speakers, and vendors. A box lunch will also be available. There is an Early Bird discount of $5, if you register before April 1st. The discounted registration will also be extended to Master Gardeners and Garden Club groups.
