Green Thumb Lecture Series

From February through November, Athens-Clarke County Extension will be offering free monthly gardening classes.   These classes take place at the Extension office on the designated dates from 6-7:30 pm.  Intended for gardeners of all experience and skill levels, the monthly classes will cover a variety of topics such as seasonal vegetable gardening, composting, beekeeping, and more.  

" Getting Along with Garden Bugs" is the subject for our next class in the Green Thumb lecture series.  This class will be presented via Zoom on July 8.  Topics to be addressed include beneficial insects, the danger and destruction of others, and tips for insect control in your garden.   Please register for this class by July 7 at athensclarkecounty.com/gardening.

We ask that you register for the class so that we may send reminders and any handouts or materials for the class.  The link for the zoom session is:  https://zoom.us/j/388938075.  The zoom classroom will open at 5:45 pm on Wednesday July 8 and the class will begin promptly at 6 pm.

The August 12 session will be presented via Zoom.  The topic for this presentation will be "Fall Vegetable Gardening".  Information will include those vegetables  particularly suited for the fall growing season in our area, when to plant, and troubleshooting gardening problems.
