I'm in The New River Valley the rest of the week attending Master Gardener College, thanks to a scholarship from the Southside Master Gardeners Association.
Today and Thursday I'm in intensive classes to become a VA Land Steward. It's 9-5 lecture today, but tomorrow we go off campus for a "Management Through Fire" demo. Cool!
MG College proper starts Friday and the agenda, including my electives is:
-Natures Sustainabke System: A Gardener's Primer to Understanding Flows, Cycles, and Succession
-How Plants Got Their Stripes, Spits, and Blotches
-How Do You Respond When Someone Asks You "So what?"
-Tree Biology Through the Seasons
-Let's Talk Firewise
-How We Hurt the Trees We Love: A Caregivers Dilemma
-Genetic Engineering: What It Is and How It Works
-Work Smarter Not Harder—Weed Management
- Land Care: What Can You Do Now?
- Slow Gardening: How We Fit OURSELVES In With It All
So that's the plan, and we start in 30 minutes! More to come, especially on my Instagram—follow @bencapozzi for more!
