As spring approaches, the Hall County Extension office gets busy with calls from anxious gardeners ready to get outside. Along with providing answers to their gardening questions, the office also partners with the Hall County Library System to set up the Spring Lunch and Learn Series.
This series of home and garden classes is targeted to the anyone interested in growing their gardening knowledge. The classes are often taught by Hall County Master Gardeners who are willing to share their expertise in an array of topics.
Below, I have included a schedule of the upcoming Spring Lunch and Learn Series that will be offered at the Gainesville Main Library and Spouts Springs Library beginning in April. They will be taught on Wednesdays (Gainesville) and Thursday (Spouts Springs) from noon until 1 p.m. Many of the participants bring a lunch and sit in on a potpourri of gardening topics offered.
The classes provide a wealth of knowledge about home gardening and have proven to be a popular series every spring. Check them out if you can — you won’t be disappointed. For more information, call the Hall County Extension office at 770-535-8293.
