Cutting Edge Organic Gardening

Lorree Cummings, Owner, Stone Cottage Farm & Garden

Become part of the movement that is sweeping country when you join others who are returning to a simpler, cleaner, healthier and more responsible way of living through organic gardening.  We will share the latest information on getting started, diversified planting designs, non-chemical pest control, increasing productivity through  design and pollinators, extending the organic harvest and more.

Medicinal Herbs in the Yard and Garden                         

Karen Geiser, Gardener and Author of Local Choices

You can grow medicine right in your backyard! We’ll look at 10 herbs that are easy to forage or grow in the garden and ways to harvest and use them.

11:15-12:15

Rain Gardens

Elaine Regas, Stark County Master Gardener 

Rain gardens are perennial gardens that are designed to capture and filter storm water runoff which provides benefits such as flood control and water filtration. Learn the importance of these gardens, their proper placement and the types of plants that do well in them.

Extending the Gardening Season

Cathy Henson, Stark County Master Gardener 

Can’t wait to get your hands “dirty”? Want some tricks to “fool” Mother Nature? Learn and perhaps share some techniques our grandparents used with great success in their gardens. We will incorporate old technology, new technology, recycling and up cycling to start the gardening season earlier and prolong into the fall as we add weeks to our Ohio gardening calendar.

Pack a lunch and stay for the free Wildflower Walk by TWC Botanizers at 1:00.
