It’s the perfect time to get your garden ready for summer. The Chesterfield County office of Virginia Cooperative Extension offers several programs for residents to learn more about their lawn and garden, and get solutions and suggestions for problem areas.
The popular Grass Roots program involves a home visit by a trained master gardener who will measure your lawn, take a soil sample, and provide personalized recommendations based on a detailed site evaluation. The program fee is $25 and covers the cost of supplies, materials and one soil test. Additional soil samples are $11 each. The Grass Roots program is available through June.
A free seminar will be offered in June. The seminar Wings of Life: The Art of Beekeeping for the Curious will be held Thursday, June 19, at 6 p.m. at Central Library. Hear about the world of beekeeping, and discover the many reasons for keeping these pollinators.
Registration is required for all programs. For more information, or to register, call 751-4401, or visit http://offices.ext.vt.edu/chesterfield/.
