Spring is coming, and with it, our desire to get going in the garden. This class is a crash course in best garden practices to be a good steward of the land. Learn when to prune and cut back plants with the least disturbance to hibernating pollinators. Understand how to start tackling invasive species. Learn what to weed now, and what might be worth keeping. Well-timed gardening saves your time and your back.

This program takes place in-person at Mt. Cuba Center on Saturday, April 1, 2023.
