It’s spring and that mean a new year of Green Talks programs!
This free monthly program is offered during warm weather months by the King George Cooperative Extension Office with assistance from volunteer Master Gardeners.
We ended the season last year with a program on Honey Bees presented by Mike Church of the Gateway BeeKeepers Association. Mike is pictured at right with some of the attendees during the sampling/Q&A session of his program.
This year, the Green Talks program begins on Tuesday, April 8, at 6:30, at the KG Extension Office with a program on Tomatoes – Part 1. Benny Goodman, tomato grower extraordinaire, will address how and when to start tomatoes and lots of other tips for growing the most popular plant in the home garden. Later in the season we’ll meet at Benny’s Farm for Tomatoes – Part II. For a complete list of the 2014 Green Talks programs, check the home page for the KG Extension Office under Programs (http://offices.ext.vt.edu/king-george/index.html) or drop by the Extension Office for a paper copy. All Green Talks programs are free but advance registration is required to ensure adequate handouts and seats are available.
