Upcoming Master Gardener Workshops and Events

by Carol Kagan, Master Gardener
We've pruned little plants at the Bonsai program and big ones at the pruning workshop. We've sowed our winter seeds and built indoor seed starting set-ups. We've found out how to lure and keep both birds and bees. Now what?
