Purdue Extension to co-sponsor annual Bi-State Gardening Seminar

January 13, 2015  


WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Purdue Extension is collaborating with the University of Illinois Extension to sponsor an annual seminar on gardening Jan. 27 at the Beef House Restaurant near Covington, Indiana.

Registration begins at 5:30 p.m. EST, followed by a buffet dinner at 6. The seminar will begin at 6:45. The restaurant is at 16501 state Route 63.

The keynote speaker for the program will be Diane Noland, a horticulture lecturer at the University of Illinois, who is also host of the TV show "Mid-American Gardener." She will discuss garden design ideas and how to appreciate garden design in public spaces.

The second speaker of the evening will be Rosie Learner, a Purdue Extension consumer horticulturist. She will present "Planting Gardens for Pollinators," which will show participants how they can encourage and protect pollinators by incorporating diversity and environmentally friendly practices into their home landscape.

The seminar is intended for garden enthusiasts, including University of Illinois and Purdue Master Gardeners, who can earn two hours of continuing education credit by attending.

Registration is $20, which includes the buffet dinner and any materials. Registration is payable at the door, though registration in advance is encouraged since space for the event is limited. RSVP is required by contacting Phil Cox of Vermillion County Extension at 765-492-5330 or cox119@purdue.edu, or by registering online at http://web.extension.illinois.edu/cfiv/ by Jan. 25.
