ISU Extension offers 'Learning Luncheon' series

Monday, May 10, 2010

Have you ever thought about wanting to attend some short, fun classes, but wondered where you'd have the time to fit them in? Lunch time is a great opportunity to fit some learning into your day and have fun while doing it.

Iowa State University (ISU) Extension in Cherokee County is offering a Learning Luncheon Series. The series consists of workshops with different topics scheduled. The workshops are taught by Field Staff, as well as Master Gardeners.

The next workshop, scheduled for May 18, is about your lawn and garden. This session will be taught by Duane Kent, one of our local Master Gardeners. Join an informative discussion on taking care of your lawn, nutrients and soil. Kent will also talk about site selection. Bring your questions and enjoy a light lunch.

A workshop scheduled for May 25 is "Having Fun in the Garden with Found Containers & More," presented by Julie French, a local Master Gardener. She has done a previous workshop with us and everyone who attended learned a lot. French will talk about how you can plant in any container, at anytime. She claims the workshop will be a little whimsy and a lot of fun. She always has some great ideas and she brings flowers and planters for you to look at. Plan to attend and ask her about her "boot" planter.

The cost for each of the workshops is $5 per person. The fee will cover the cost of a light lunch, which will be provided. Pre-registration is requested. Please call (712) 225-6196 or email kindwall@iastate.edu to pre-register. All workshops will be held at noon at the ISU Extension Office in Cherokee, located at 209 Centennial Dr, Ste. A, Cherokee, IA.

Iowa State University Extension provides research-based information and education for communities, families, business and industry, agriculture and natural resources, and 4-H youth development as well as continuing education through off-campus courses, degree programs, service learning programs, noncredit conferences and seminars, and educational materials.
