Clark County Extension is once again offering the opportunity to Gardening enthusiasts and beginners to gardening to get to learn how to successfully raise vegetables in their communities and backyards. Whether you are going to engage in vegetable gardening as a food supplement, engage in it as a means to put in needed exercise or want to maintain a vegetables garden for healthy eating reasons, this is an opportunity for you. It is also an opportunity for grandparents and parents to learn how to garden so they can use gardening for quality bonding with their children and grandchildren while taking advantage of the therapeutic benefits of gardening. These sessions also offer Purdue Master Gardeners and other experts in vegetable gardening an opportunity to share their knowledge with participants.

The after dinner garden conversation as the name implies is going to do just that! We will combine conversations on individual experiences with presentations.
