Fairfield County Master Gardener Volunteers invite you back to “Dig Into Gardening” a half day educational seminar. Pam Bennett, State Master Gardener Volunteer Director will kick off the event by helping us discover some new and underused perennials. We will also learn a bit more about annuals that will offer the “Wow” factor to your landscape. Fairfield County Extension Educator, Carrie Brown will discuss the Spotted Lanternfly. Spotted lanternflies will cover trees, swarm in the air, and their honeydew can coat decks and play equipment. In addition to damaging trees and affecting quality of life, the spotted lanternfly is a huge threat to the agriculture industry. The economic impact could total in the hundreds of millions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of jobs for those in the grapes, apple, hops, and hardwood industries. Our keynote speaker, Dr. Tim McDermott, Extension Educator, will join us with "Growing the Edible Landscape...Yes, You Can Do It!". Also, a new feature to this year’s event is going to be the opportunity for participants to spend the afternoon visiting several local greenhouses and garden centers throughout Fairfield County. Maps and discount coupons will be provided at the event.
