Chautauqua County Master Gardeners Kick off Evening In the Garden 2022

(Jamestown, NY, June 8, 2022)- Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County Master Gardeners Program is inviting the public to share some time at their new demonstration gardens for an evening of learning and asking ques-tions on a noteworthy garden topic. Our demonstration gardens are where the master gardeners test garden tech-niques proven by the Cornell Cooperative Extension and Cornell University Life Sciences and Agriculture. The public can learn about many of these cultivation and time saving processes that make for a more successful home and com-munity garden. Our 2022 trial, “Cultural Roots of the Americas”, will feature vegetables with connections to cultures from Central America, South America, The Caribbean, and Indigenous People of New York.

The sessions cover a variety of gardening topics and involve direct how to methods in our demo garden. The demon-stration gardens co-chair, Wickie Stapleton announces the first session will commence on June 15, 2022, at 6PM. Other sessions on July 20, 2022, at 6PM and on August 17th, 2022, at 6PM. These sessions are open to the public, and we ask all participants to come ready with their questions.

The demonstration garden is located at the JCC-Community Gardens located by the JCC-Physical Education Complex right behind the tennis courts. Parking is located nearby right off Curtis St. The Chautauqua County Master Gardener Volunteers are part of the Cornell Cooperative Extension providing instruction, assistance to community gardeners and the gardening public.
