The Barn Series of Gardening Lectures & Workshops for the Shenandoah Valley Gardener

Northern Shenandoah Valley Master Gardeners and Belle Grove Plantation have teamed up to host a series of monthly lectures & workshops from April to October 2017.  The lecture topics will focus on home gardening and using what can be grown at home. The knowledgeable instructors are members of the Northern Shenandoah Valley Master Gardener Association (NSVMGA).  Each monthly session will include a lecture followed by a workshop where students will put to use some new found ideas.  Attendees will go home with creations that range from garden art, starter gardens, samples of herb and tomato dips, lavender craft, and Williamsburg style holiday decorations.  Most class fees will be $25, though some classes will have an additional fee to cover the cost of materials for the workshops. Sign up for any four classes and attend the other classes at no additional charge, except for application supply fees.
