A lot of Northlanders plant gardens and many have thought about ways of improving their harvest.  A presentation from the St. Louis County Extension office aims to help people get the skills and know-how they need to make that happen.  As part of the two-part gardening series "Spring Gardening Extravaganza", a session on Living Off The Land:  Your Edible Landscape has been planned for April 25 at the First United Methodist Church (the Coppertop Church).  Check in starts at 4:45 PM and the actual session runs 5:30 to 8:45 PM.

At the session, you'll learn great gardening tips specifically tailored to our area by the experts:  Bob Olen, Dr. Stephen Hedman, and Kendall Dykhuis.

The session on April 25 will include information about the following topics:

  • Planting your edible landscape
  • Heirloom, hybrid, and GMO seed:  Implications for gardeners
  • Soil testing and the new soil science
  • Small fruits:  strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries
