You will learn all the best tips for growing the best vegetables in your garden this summer.

Container Gardening, Saturday May 3, 2014 at 11 am

Composting, Thursday May 8, 2014 at 6 pm

Growing Herbs, Saturday, May 10, 2014 at 11 am
Herbs are an easy way to enhance your gardening experience and the dinner table too. Nothing tastes better than fresh herbs in your favorite recipes.

The 2014 spring workshops are a joint venture between The Greenhouse Project and the Penn State Master Gardeners in Lackawanna County. They will be held at the McNulty Greenhouse at Nay Aug Park at 200 Arthur Avenue, Scranton, PA 18510. The sessions are free but, reservations are required.

During the month of May, The Penn State Master Gardeners will be available to answer your gardening questions and give you the latest research – based information on home horticultural topics. We will have soil test kits available for purchase and plenty of free publications to take home. Our hours at the greenhouse will be Thursdays, from 6 pm to 8 pm and Saturdays, 11 am to 1 pm. Stop by and see us.

To register or for more information, contact us at 570-963-6842 or email LackawannaMG@psu.edu.

These children learn, through touch, taste, song and dance, about the connection of food we eat to the farmers that grow it. They later made artistic gardens of their own.

Invited by The Everhart Museum, The Greenhouse Project enjoyed meeting and teaching  children and adults this week.  Special thanks to TreeAnne and Brenda, our multi-talented children’s program coordinators.

Young Cooks Academy

Young Cooks Academy

Young Cooks Academy had its last class of the series – Apple and Pumpkin Pies! Instructor Kim Minora worked with volunteer Ali Hamilton and Marywood Nutrition students all teaching kids about food and kitchen safety, salads, soups, pies and pizza from scratch and healthy.

The children learned about label reading, healthy choices, fresh versus canned and had a good meal with leftovers to bring home. Thanks goes to the United Way and Myrtle St. UMC.
