PLATTSBURGH - Cornell Cooperative Extension Clinton County will be providing hands-on gardening education to community members interested in learning how to grow their own food through a teaching garden.
The Plattsburgh teaching garden will be offered at the Plattsburgh Community Garden located in Melissa L. Penfield Park on Boynton Avenue from Monday, May 10, through Thursday, Sept. 23
Classes will meet Monday and Thursday evenings from 6:30-7:30 p.m. The cost for the four-month class is $100, which covers all classes, the community garden plot fee, water use, all plants and seeds, use of tools, soil amendments, and all of the produce grown during the class. A payment plan and need based scholarships are available upon request.
Community members interested in attending the class portion of the teaching garden are encouraged to do so. A modest donation of $5 per class is requested to help ensure long-term sustainability of the teaching garden.
