Judy Stacey, Albany City Gardener for 18 years, has volunteered to bring her expertise to the local community throughout the winter in a monthly series of inter-active seminars that will benefit both new and experienced gardeners. Judy is an Albany County Master Gardener and owner of her own business for the past eight years.
“Gardening in the Hoods: Problems and Promises” is a FREE 6-part series designed by Judy to help everyone faced with the unique challenges and opportunities of inner-city gardening. Judy wants to hear from YOU. What do you want to learn? She’ll bring in experts to discuss those things at subsequent meetings. The format is informal, with questions and answers at the core. As Judy says, “Every garden is different.”
Everyone is welcome and registration isn’t required; just show up!
Wednesday, November 13 | 7:00-8:30 pm
“What’s in My Garden”
Judy will cover soil, watering, trees, sun/shade and other issues we have in common, as well as the correct way to put your garden to bed for the winter. Other Master Gardeners will do free basic soil tests that night. To prepare for this meeting, Judy requests you do the following NOW, prior to the meeting and before we have a frost:
- Take photographs of your garden, particularly the trees.
- Take soil samples and bring them to the November 13 meeting.
