Master Gardener Workshops

K-DOCK 92.9

The Coos County Master Gardeners in cooperation with OSU Extension in Myrtle Point will be holding gardening workshops open to the public this gardening season. The first two workshops in the series begin in March. First up: Plant Disease and Insect Damage Diagnosis by Ross Penhallegon, OSU Associate Professor and Horticulturist on March 9th from 9am to 12pm at the OSU Extension.

The second workshop will be on Tree Identification by Tristan Huff, OSU Extension Forestry Agent, on March 12th at 1pm. The initial workshop begins at the Extension but (weather permitting) will include a field trip to look at local trees in the area. The public workshops are $10.00 per attendee. Because of space restrictions, class size is limited so early registration is recommended.
