Clearing the garden means plenty of extra material that can be put to use as fodder for your own compost. Learn how to create and maintain a compost pile that will help clear up space in the garden and create organic matter for years to come.

Taking a season off the vegetable garden but still itching to get your hands dirty? In the second half of class, learn how and when to grow new plants from stem cuttings taken after plants have gone dormant.

Join the Extension Master Gardener℠ volunteers of Durham County and Ashley Troth (Extension Horticulture Agent) to learn gardening tricks and tips at the Briggs Avenue Community Garden. Sessions will be led by Kathryn Hamilton and Sara Smith, Extension Master Gardener Volunteers of Durham County.
