Event description
Join the Windsor Chapter Extension Master Gardeners for our annual season kick-off pot luck and presentation by life-long gardener Liz Knox

About this Event

Join Liz Knox to hear about her 16-year journey creating a garden in her Wales country setting in the middle of fields looking down a valley at the sea. She’ll humorously share the adjustments she’s made as she’s progressed from a 60-year-old gardener to a 76-year-old one, along with lessons learned as well as some she should have learned along the way. We’ll enjoy photos of her gardens as we learn how gardening has to change as we age, including recommendations for practical approaches to design and plants that need less effort and that work in Vermont and New Hampshire. She likes to warn her audiences that some of the things she grows in the mild climate of Wales simply can’t be grown here, so some of her photos seem just plain gloating!

The program is free for Master Gardeners, Alumni, Interns, and Students. A donation of your choice for the general public.

Schedule:
