Home Horticulture Evening Lecture Series
March 21, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm$250.00
For home-gardeners looking to take their knowledge and skills to the next level, the Massachusetts Master Gardener Association (MMGA) has announced a new spring session of its popular 10-week Home Horticulture Evening Lecture Series: the program will run on Thursday evenings March through May at the Boston Nature Center and Wildlife Conservancy, Mattapan, a MassAudubon property.
According to MMGA Home Horticulture Series Coordinator Chris Gatti, "The association started Home Hort in response to experienced gardeners who were interested in Master Gardener Training but whose lifestyles didn’t permit them to attend daytime classes or volunteer. For them – as well as for novice gardeners – the Home Hort Series offers a streamlined, informal format: ten 90- minute evening classes, no homework or testing, and no volunteering.”
Classes will be held on ten consecutive Thursday evenings, 6:30-8:00 PM, March 21 through May 23. Lectures cover the same topics studied by Master Gardeners but in an abbreviated format and include important fundamentals such as building great soil and how plants work...as well as practical how-to's like basic landscape design, perennial selection and care, and combating weeds, diseases and pests.
For gardeners with some experience, the Home Hort lecture series offers an opportunity to refine their knowledge and skills. For novices, it provides a strong learning foundation for designing and planting this year’s garden.
The cost is $250.00 per person for all ten lectures. Instructors are senior Master Gardeners with in-depth experience in their respective topics. Handouts are provided.
The Jamaica Plain News calendar is open to all local organizations and businesses.
