Public lectures offered by BJEMGA in March

By Staff | Mar 3, 2017

Jump into Spring with the Berkeley-Jefferson Extension Master Gardener Association (BJEMGA). The group will offer four lectures in March on gardening topics of importance to the environment. The presentations will be held from 7-8 p.m. in the meeting room at the Jefferson County WVU Extension Service building located at 1948 Wiltshire Road in Kearneysville.

The first lecture on Friday evening, Mar. 10, may surprise all with the answer to the question, “Is that a Weed?” The following three Tuesday evening presentations include “Creating a Butterfly Habitat Help a Monarch!” on Mar. 14; “Invasive Plants What Can YOU Do?” on Mar. 21; and “Spring Wildflowers of the Eastern Panhandle” on Mar. 28.

The Speakers’ Bureau of the Berkeley-Jefferson Extension Master Gardener Association has been working to develop free public presentations on a variety of subjects ranging from seed-starting to the use of native plants in your backyard. Be sure to visit the BJEMGA webpage at www.berkeley.ext.wvu.edu to see the entire listing of topics and make a reservation for an Extension Master Gardener to share gardening information with your group. Reservations may be made by calling the Berkeley County WVU Extension office at (304) 264-1936 for more information.
