The Hardin County OSU Extension Master Gardener Volunteers along with the assistance of the Men’s Garden Club are sponsoring “An Evening Garden Affair” on Monday evening, June 24 at the Friendship Gardens of Hardin County located at 960 W. Kohler Street in Kenton. The event is from 6 to 9 pm and will feature Sarah Noggle of OSU Extension-Paulding County with a program about how to grow vegetables with limited space.
Attendees will learn about vegetable gardening in small areas. Sarah Noggle, Paulding County Agriculture and Natural Resources Extension Educator will discuss the use of raised beds, containers, and vertical growing techniques to add to traditional vegetable gardening methods. Learn how these practices can enhance your gardening experience and make better use of your abilities and available space. Also, find out how you can contribute extra produce locally to help those in need.
This event is free and open to the public, rain or shine with the program inside the HARCO workshop with seating and air conditioning. It will then move outside for a demonstration and questions. Master Gardener Volunteers will be stationed throughout the Friendship Gardens for the evening to answer your gardening questions. Door prizes and refreshments will be part of the evening festivities. If you have not visited the Friendship Gardens, this will provide you
with an ideal time for your first visit and to come away with good gardening information and advice.
The evening begins at 6 pm with causal browsing in the garden and refreshments. Sarah Noggle will speak at 7 pm and the evening will continue after her presentation with a further chance to explore the Friendship Gardens and see examples of raised bed, container, and vertical gardens. All who have an interest in gardening will not want to miss this event. Parking is at the garden off West Kohler Street or in front of HARCO Industries.
