POSTPONED 21st Annual Garden Day: "Garden Vision"

  • Saturday, April 4, 2020, 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM


This one-day gardening extravaganza is a community educational program presented by the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County Master Gardener Program.

Keynote Speaker Dr. Margaret Ronsheim: Edith Roberts’ Ecological Laboratory: The Creation and Restoration of a Native Plant Garden.

THE MARKETPLACE, with many local garden vendors, will be open during the lunch break. Please note, some vendors aren’t able to accept credit cards at Garden Day (cash or checks OK). Master Gardener volunteers will also be on hand to answer gardening questions, perform free soil tests and plant diagnosis. 

RAFFLE. Drawing takes place in the cafeteria at 4:15 pm.

Each participant when registering will select up to four separate classes throughout the day. It’s important to pre-register to insure that all classes listed will be offered. Be sure to indicate on the pre-registration form your first and second choices for each time slot. We will try to place everyone in their first choice, but class size is limited and we may need to place you in another class. Registering early will help you avoid this. Registration at the door will be $55. Due to the nature of Garden Day, NO REFUNDS will be issued. Please find someone to take your place if you cannot attend after registration is submitted.
