Backyard garden effort back by popular demand

WARRENSBURG - With an eye on the financial and nutritional stresses families are facing, Cornell Cooperative Extension in Warren County is sponsoring a program for people to raise their own vegetables and herbs.

So many people responded to Cooperative Extension's "Victory Vegetable Garden" program in 2009 that the agency is expanding it this year by offering new herb seed starter kits as well as those for vegetables, agency Community Educator Julie Nathanson said. Each seed kit is only $5, and both kits are $9 for together. Proceeds from the starter kits are to be used to support the Cornell Cooperative Extension 4-H and the Master Gardener programs in Warren County. Beginning Feb. 16, the kits are available at the Cooperative Extension office on Schroon River Rd, Nathanson said.

Cooperative Extension can be reached by calling 623-3291.
