WVU Berkeley County Extension Service
At your service in our community.
The Berkeley-Jefferson Extension Master Gardeners are pleased to announce the annual Garden Fest and Plant Sale. Garden Fest will be on Saturday, May 4, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. We are at a new location this year - the WVU Kearneysville Tree Fruit Research and Education Center at 67 Apple Harvest Lane in Kearneysville, WV.
All sale proceeds support the local Master Gardener program. Most of the plants being sold have been locally propagated and potted up just for you. Mother's day is coming up - this might be just the place to find a special gift. Garden Fest is a rain or shine event...come early...the best plants go fast. Questions? Call the Berkeley County Extension Office at 304-264-1936.
The 13-week training course gives gardeners the opportunity to improve their horticultural knowledge and then share what they learn with the public through organized volunteer activities.
Program topics covered include: botany, plant problem diagnosis, soils, ornamentals, pest management, fruits, vegetables, and plant propagation. Extension staff, Master Gardeners, and local area experts serve as class instructors.
The following programs will be presented by WVU Extension Master Gardeners from 7 to 8 p.m. Talks are free and open to the public.
All talks will be held at the Jefferson County WVU Extension Service at 1948 Wiltshire Road, Kearneysville, WV.
