Upcoming ANR Events
  • Feb 27 Composting and Mulching Compost is used as an organic amendment to improve the quality of soil. Composting is one of the most practical and convenient ways to handle food and yard refuse while reducing waste, improving soil and helping plants thrive. Mulching is one of the simplest and most beneficial practices you can use in the garden. Mulch is simply a protective layer of a material that is spread on top of the soil. Come join Master Composter Julie Aring as she demonstrates and discusses the composting process, mulching and their benefits. Free. Fayetteville, GA
  • Mar 6 Vegetable Gardening Basics Do you follow all the instructions and still have vegetable plants that “flop”? Are you ready to give up? If you answered yes, this class is for you. Join Sandy Golden, Master Gardener Extension Volunteer, as she offers suggestions and techniques on ways to grow your home vegetables in Georgia.
