Our highly anticipated "Gardening with the Masters" classes have been announced. These classes are taught by our Master Gardener Extension Volunteers. They are very informative and cover a variety of topics.

 Our first class in the series begins on February 23. "Healthy Lawns" will focus on the tasks that need to be performed at certain times of the year to insure the health and appearance of your lawn. Weed control, fertilization, aeration and irrigation will all be discussed in this class. If you are interested in attending this class or any of our classes, please fill out the registration form and return it along with payment to our office.

Our classes are held in the Multipurpose Room of the Houston County Extension Office(unless otherwise noted), 801 Main St, Perry. Classes begin at 6pm and will end around 8pm. The registration fee of $10 will cover all materials used in the class. Deadline for registration is ONE WEEK prior to the class.
