Hot Topics 2021 - Online Course
S21/HT2
This is a recording of the live Webex presentation on 8/19/21 and is available for for those who couldn't attend the live session. Only one Hot Topics class per year is necessary to maintain Active Certified UConn Master Gardener status. Please do not register if you attended the live webinar session. Concerns over climate, public health, habitat loss, and declines in biodiversity can seem overwhelming and paralyzing. But there is much we, as individuals and collectively, can do on local scale to address these issues. Susan Masino and Margery Winters, a neuroscientist and a naturalist, respectively will showcase how simple and gradual changes in our local ecology can “multisolve” – offer multiple benefits, now and in the future.  More

Basics of Seed Saving & Stewarding
F21/06
Historically growers have saved seed and in so doing have selected for higher quality seeds. There is a need now more than ever to return to those practices due to extreme weather and environmental conditions becoming our norm. Join Kris to learn basic seed saving and how to be a good steward to favorite varieties. Kris will bring some of her seed collection to share and class participants will be invited to take seeds as we tour the garden. Envelopes will be provided.

Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early so we can start promptly at 1 at the garden. When you arrive at the farm, park in the parking area. The BFA Garden is located in middle of the back field of the farm. You need to wear appropriate shoes or boots for walking on a rutted, this year often muddy, dirt road. Class size is limited to 25.
Rain Date is October 1st.

Smart, Sustainable Lawns
F21/02
As we have traditionally maintained them, American lawns have been resource and labor intensive, biologically sterile, and major sources of water and air pollution. Thomas Christopher will share with you a new model of sustainable lawn: a smart lawn that is easier to maintain, thrifty with resources, and friendly to wildlife. Learn how your lawn can be greener in every sense of the word, a net contributor to the local ecosystem, while still offering the space for relaxation and a handsome backdrop for garden plantings.
