This year the Dale County Extension Office and the Claybank Master Gardeners are hosting a monthly Lunch and Learn series. On the second Tuesday of each month a timely home garden topic is presented by either a Master Gardener or Extension Agent.
Thus far, we have discussed feeding and attracting birds, home pruning, the basics to home composting, and which bulbs to plant to have color year round. We are looking forward to May’s topic on bees. Not only will we discuss the importance of our native pollinators, but we’ll also learn about the honey bee.
Though the Lunch and Learn is only an hour, held from 12 to 1pm, we are able to discuss the topics in detail. We encourage individuals to bring their questions even if they do not pertain to the topic. We have found this provides a more relaxed atmosphere and aids participation from the audience.
Each session is free and open to the public. We ask that attendees bring their lunch, friends and questions.
It is held at the Dale County Extension Office located on South Highway 123 in Ozark, AL. For further information contact the Extension Office at 334-774-2329.
