We have lots of classes coming up this summer. For a full list go to our website, http://www.civicgardencenter.org/ and click on the Education menu and then on Class Updates to get the full list. There are a couple that I'd like to tell you about:
Organic Lawn Care
Saturday August 9, 10am-Noon
Wes Duren, Landscape Manager, Marvin’s Organic Gardens will be leading the class. For those of you who have yet to seed your lawn, or have an existing lawn and want to rejuvenate it, Wes Duren will share a natural, more holistic approach to lawn care established by Marvin’s Organic Gardens. For every lawn problem, there are many organic, chemical free solutions. These methods are tried and true, and will equip you with techniques to eliminate dependence on harsh chemical fertilizers, insecticides, fungicides and herbicides. If you stop to think about the abundance of chemicals that lawn care companies spread each spring, summer, and fall you'll realize the importance of finding and using Organic methods to care for your lawn.
Birds of the Tri-State
Saturday, August 23, 10am-2pm
Brian Jorg, Horticulturist, Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden will share his knowledge of our flying and feathered friends. Join Brian Jorg for a presentation on the birds of the tri-state region. See the rich diversity of feathered fauna that can be found in our area. Just in time for the fall migration, we will also discuss some of the best locations in our area to view these winged wonders. Light refreshments will be served.
