‘GARDENING BASICS’ WORKSHOP
Hands-on workshop for summer and part-time residents
[WOODRIDGE] – Sullivan Renaissance is holding a gardening workshop geared toward summer and part-time residents on Wednesday, July 9, 2008 at the Woodridge Synagogue (Congregation Ohave Sholem Anshei) on Maurice Rose Street.
The workshop is designed to help visitors who own or rent a summer home, or spend summers at a camp or bungalow colony. Everyone is welcome. It will start at 3:30 p.m. Pre-registration is requested.
Participants will receive hands-on instruction in a real garden plot while helping to beautify the synagogue’s mikvah in the process. The instructor is Sullivan Renaissance horticulturalist Vivian Multari-Ginsberg, who will teach the basics of container gardening, how to prepare and care for flower beds, and select appropriate plants and flowers that return each year with minimal care.
“Sometimes Sullivan County’s summer residents wonder what plants will work best when one is starting to garden in June or July,” said Vivian Multari-Ginsberg. “This workshop is designed for individuals who want to learn about summer gardening, and also participate in the planting and beautification efforts that are taking place around the county.”
Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation. Additional funding has been secured by NYS Senator John J. Bonacic and Assemblywoman Aileen M. Gunther. Significant sponsorships have also been provided by WSUL/WVOS and by Thunder 102.
