Presentations offer gardening tips

LAKE PLACID - The 2010 Sunday Garden Series in Lake Placid "Yes You Can... Garden in the North Country" will begin Sunday, March 14 with "Dreaming Your Garden and Getting Started Right". Dana Fast and Karen Davidson, Master Gardener Volunteers, will present the first program of the series.

Dana Fast has been growing vegetables and flowers in her zone three garden for 35 years. Dana, a scientist, has tested many theories and discovered ways to extend her gardens' growing season. She is able to eat from her Lake Clear garden throughout the year. Karen Davidson, a graphic designer has been planting and weeding flower gardens since she was a little girl. She had a walled garden in rural France for 8 years. Now, transplanted to a shady cold woodland hollow in Lake Placid, she is dreaming, planning and taming her bit of north country wilderness. This program will be inspirational and informative for both novice and experienced gardeners.

The program is free and held 3- 4:30 p.m. at Heaven Hill Farm, 302 Bear Cub Lane in Lake Placid. The garden series is presented by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Essex County's Master Gardener Volunteers.
