Gardening classes offered in Sherman County

If sunny April days give you the urge to go outside, dig in the dirt and plant something, the ”Spring Into Vegetable Gardening” classes offered by OSU Sherman County Extension might be for you.

There are lots of reasons why people like to have vegetable gardens, including fresh, tasty produce. Some like watching plants grow from seed to table, or to simply get outside and get some physical activity.

Gardening is also a great way to try new vegetable varieties, grow your own organic vegetables or share a bountiful harvest with friends and neighbors. Gardeners wishing to plant a new, larger or better vegetable garden this year are invited to free gardening classes in Sherman County.

Offered by OSU Sherman County Extension, the “Spring Into Vegetable Gardening” classes will be offered at three locations, pick the one that best fits your schedule: Wednesday, April 13, 6 p.m. at the St. Mary Parish Hall in Wasco; Monday, April 18, 6 p.m. at the City Hall in Rufus; or Friday, April 22, 9 a.m. at the Extension Office in Moro.

Free seeds and gardening handouts will be available at each session.

For more information or for a copy of the gardening information, contact Cindy Brown at OSU Sherman County Extension 541-565-3230 or email cindy.brown@oregonstate.edu.
