Landscape for Life Offered this Spring
Are you a gardener new to Southside Virginia or the northern piedmont of North Carolina? Have you ever wanted to take the Master Gardener course but are still working or don’t want to commit to the volunteer obligation? The VCE Southside Master Gardener Association’s Landscape for Life may be just what you need. Landscape for Life is based on sustainable landscape practices. Think of it as a mini-Master Gardener training. The six classes will occur on Fridays January 26, February 9, March 1, March 15, March 29 and April 12, 2024. All classes are held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Halifax Extension Office. The Landscape for Life series starts off on January 26 with an introduction to soils by Kathy Conner Cornell. Most times we don’t give soil any thought. Soils are everything to the plant. It is through the interaction of roots and the soil that plants receive their nutrition and water. Healthy soils are the basis of a beautiful garden. You will need to bring a small baggie of soil from your garden to this first class.
