    Symposium Announced

    2016 SPRING GARDEN SYMPOSIUM
    Saturday, March 19, 2016
    8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
    Cape Fear Botanical Garden
    536 N. Eastern Blvd., Fayetteville, NC 28301

    Sponsored by Public Works Commission (PWC)

    Come join the Cumberland County Extension Master Gardeners and Cape Fear Botanical Garden as we present our Spring Garden Symposium.  From Bee-keeping to gardening with families, there is something for every interest. We will show you how to use native plants in the landscape and give tips on making that landscape appealing for our native birds by using water features and other elements. The possibilities are endless in what you will learn at this diverse symposium.

    The keynote address “Woodland Wonders from the Wild” presented by Barry Glick promises to be an enlightening, entertaining and educational look at some of the plants that we overlook on our woodland hikes. The most interesting and unusual wildflowers are growing in our own backyards right under our noses. Join native plant expert Barry Glick for a fascinating wild wander into the wonderful world of woodland wildflowers.

    Come and grow your gardening knowledge at the Spring Garden Symposium!
