Ed Fisher will present the program in the backyard of the Taney County MU Extension Center in Forsyth in the Master Gardener’s Native Plant Garden. This program is free and open to the public.
Attendees will learn how to turn a raised bed into a cold frame or winter greenhouse. Then in the spring, remove the cover and add row cover to protect the plants from the weather.
The Master Gardeners of the Ozarks have been presenting monthly gardening programs this summer as part of their community service. Master Gardeners will be in attendance at the program to help with additional gardening questions.
The remaining schedule for the series is as follows:
- Tuesday, Sept. 9, Noon – Raised Bed/Winter Gardening
- Saturday, October 4, 10 a.m. – Pass Along Plants
“We hope you can take time from your busy schedules and come and join us in our gardens,” said Master Gardener Marva Ramsey. “Though their hard work, grants and donations the Master Gardeners of the Ozarks have provided the Taney County Extension Center with one of the most beautiful demonstration gardens in the county and they would like to share it with you.”
Classes will be held in the backyard of the Taney County Extension Center at 122 Felkins Avenue in Forsyth, near the Taney County Judicial Center.
