CCE Putnam is excited to offer our spring gardening classes online! While we are all spending more time at home, we can improve our health and the environment by getting our hands dirty in the garden. Whether you are new to gardening or a seasoned horticulturalist, you are bound to learn something from our classes. CCE Putnam Horticulture Educators and Master Gardener Volunteers will be teaching each of these classes, so bring your questions! Many of these are fun to do with your kids as well.

Seed Starting

Thursday April 16, 4PM-5PM

Join us for an hour of learning seed biology and how to successfully start seeds in your home. This activity is especially great for kids.

Happy Earth Day! Join our discussion about the harm that plastics do to our environment, and how we can each reduce our consumption of single use plastics.

Grow Your Own Vegetables

Saturday April 25, 10AM-11:30AM

This class is perfect for folks who are in their first year or so of gardening. You’ll learn how to pick a location for your garden, plan what to grow, make sure your soil is healthy, and more!

Plant a Pollinator Paradise

Saturdays May 2 and 9, 9:30AM-11AM

Pollinators are in trouble, but luckily each of us can have a part in ensuring a healthy environment for them. Join us for an in depth and interactive look at how to plan and create a pollinator garden on your property. Whether you have acres or just a front porch, you can create pollinator habitat. This is a two-part class with some at-home work.
