Want to learn how to garden and be kind to the environment at the same time? Come to Amy Dismukes’ introduction to Organic Gardening! Her presentation is not so much “anti-chemical” as it is pro-gardening in an environmentally friendly manner. Amy will offer an overview of gardening in cooperation with the ecosystem… of the home garden. In addition to explaining how to build/improve soil and plant nutrition using organic fertilizers, Amy will also demonstrate ways to grow a garden that is naturally resistant to pests and diseases.
Amy Dismukes is the Horticulture Extension Agent for Williamson County. She has a Master’s Degree in Plant Pathology & Entomology and provides educational training on horticultural issues for both homeowners and businesses. Amy also runs the Williamson County Master Gardener program, serves on the WCMGA board and is a frequent guest speaker for garden and horticultural associations.
Join Amy in the library’s first floor meeting room at 6:30 p.m. to get started with organic gardening techniques.
