Winter is here with all its pleasures, but many of us are looking forward to the warmer days.
If you are desiring inspiration for next years’s garden or landscaping, it is not too early to register for the Master Gardener classes offered by the Los Alamos County and New Mexico State University Cooperative Extension Service.
Classes are 6-9 p.m. Tuesdays, Feb. 4 through April 25 Fuller Lodge. Classes are open to anyone who desires to learn more about gardening and to share what they’ve learned with others.
Specialists from New Mexico State University and Los Alamos County Agent Carlos Valdez will teach each of the 13 classes. A few of the numerous subjects to be taught are “Basic Botany and Plant ID”, “Climate and Water”, “Weeds”, “Vegetable Production” and “Shrubs & Trees”.
Individuals from all walks of life participate in the Master Gardener Classes and Program. Many continue their commitment to the program, volunteering their time in numerous ways by sharing appropriate research-based gardening information and techniques with the community. A program of the Los Alamos Master Gardeners is the Demo Garden at the corner of Central Ave and Oppenheimer Dr., designed for the education and enjoyment of the community.
