UPDATE: The Roundtable has been postponed due to inclement weather. Please stay tuned as it will be re-scheduled.

The River Bend Community Organic Garden presents a free Roundtable for Gardeners on Tuesday, February 17th at 6:30pm at River Bend Town Hall.

Come to a forum where you can bring your gardening questions, issues and tips. If you have struggled with temperamental tomatoes, watched your summer squash wilt, or lost your melons to powdery mildew, let us help you find possible solutions to your most vexing vegetable garden troubles. This is the place to discuss your garden problems, share ideas and give each other inspiration.

Local experts who will facilitate in finding solutions are  Tim Minch, Grounds Coordinator at Lenoir County Community College and former Greenhouse Manager at Tryon Palace gardens who will share tips and thoughts gleaned from 25 years’ experience; Master Gardener Audrey Kress Williams, member of the Cropmaster’s demonstration garden at the NC Cooperative Extension office and other local community gardens, who will offer new knowledge gained from her recent farm internship at The Many Hands Peace Farm at The Mountain in western North Carolina; and Chazz Foret, owner/operator of Trent Woods Hardware & Garden Center, who holds a BS in Horticulture; Floriculture and Greenhouse Management from NC State will be able to offer ideas based on over 35 years of experience.

In honor of Heart Health month, our refreshments will demonstrate that healthy food can taste delicious.

RSVP preferred. Contact Dee Smith at 252-634-3192.
