Garden seminars

All About Composting is the seminar topic today at 9 a.m. In the summer many of us have grass clippings, flowers that have gone by, and a variety of organic matter waiting at the curbside for the weekly garbage pick-up.

Summer is a great time to start composting. It’s a nice organic approach to utilizing all of that green stuff you don’t know what to do with.

Reservations are not required for the seminars, but be sure to bring your sunscreen as the pond plant seminar will take place at the outdoor demonstration pond.

For more information, call 882-8600. The center is located at 2450 S Curry St., Carson City.

Mike Campie, local lavender grower and owner of Campies Lavender Patch, will talk about the different varieties of lavender and be giving out growing tips during at 9:30 a.m. Aug. 7 at Greenhouse Garden Center, 2450 S. Curry St., Carson City.

Campie will also talk about the best lavenders for essential oil and how lavender can be used in cooking and other products. The session is free and no reservations are necessary.
