I just love Blake Morgan, the guy who heads up Programs and Volunteers at the Texas Discovery Gardens. He thoughtfully sends out weather updates a few days before each seminar. Today he sent an email to all saying, ‘It’s going to be between 40 and 50 degrees on Saturday so bundle up in warm clothes as a portion of our class will be outdoors’. At the last seminar I attended, I was most thankful to Blake for the warning. I remembered my gloves and scarf and needed them while learning about soil – outdoors – from the good folks at Living Earth Technologies. It was worth bracing the cold wind, I learned a lot. Ah, then it was time for the greenhouse.
Along with the weather forecast, Blake is also letting everyone know there are still a few slots open for this March 14th class, dually held at the TDG and the Lake Highlands Community Garden, the first time ever the LHCG has hosted any kind of class. I’ll be helping give tours. That’s pretty cool! The LHCG portion of the seminar will be from noon to 2 pm and registrants are asked to bring a sack lunch – and garden spending money. It’s confirmed that there will be organically grown plants and ‘Worm Wine’ for sale, reasonably priced.
