Winter is a great time for learning about gardening and getting inspiration for next year’s gardens. Join us Tuesday evening, January 4, 2011 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at Chattanooga State Community College’s Humanities Theatre for an evening of learning and garden fun with Carol Reese and Jason Reeves. There is a suggested $5 minimum donation with all proceeds going to the Chattanooga Area Food Bank.
Carol Reese, UT Extension Ornamental Horticulture Specialist is a nationally-known speaker, gardening and nature columnist for the Jackson Sun Times, and Q & A columnist for Horticulture Magazine. Carol has a BS and MS in Horticulture from Mississippi State University and attributes her love of horticulture to being raised on a farm by generations of plant nuts.
