LIBERTY, NY — Getting kids in the garden is a great way to spend the warm summer days! It helps develop skills like responsibility and patience and gears them towards scientific thinking! To educate young people on the planting and care of fruits, vegetables, and herbs, Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County’s Horticulture Program Coordinator Katie Gasior will host an educational program at the Extension Education Center at 64 Ferndale-Loomis Road in Liberty on planting seeds. The program will take place on Wednesday, June 28th from 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM.
The class will be taught in person and begin with a short lesson on plant care and basic biology. This will be followed by a demonstration of seed planting, where participants will have a chance to choose from a variety of flower, herb and vegetable seeds, then plant their chosen seeds with Katie’s guidance. Participants will take home and care for their planted seeds.
