Free gardening class Aug. 9


As summer vegetables come to a halt, it’s time for home gardeners to start preparing fall gardens.  Fresh collards, broccoli, cabbage, spinach, lettuce – and the list goes on.

If your soil is right and water is supplied as needed, you will be rewarded with tender vegetables in a season when few people are enjoying these fresh, home grown delicacies.  Fall gardening is also a favorite because the weather is “cooler.”

The public is invited to a free class Tuesday, Aug. 9, 10-11:30 a.m. in Suite 210 of the Fayette administrative complex, 140 Stonewall Avenue in Fayetteville.

Master gardener extension volunteer Sandy Golden will talk about soil, water and the right fall crops while providing other useful information and tips.

To ensure seating and material for everyone, RSVP by phone (770-305-5412) or email ( with the name(s) of those attending and a phone contact.
