For over 8 years, we have been perfecting seed-starting, and I have come to realize that most of what home gardeners are told about it isn't complete and actually leads to failure or weak, unsatisfying seedlings. In this workshop, we'll demonstrate and go over how to start your own seeds professionally and successfully. We are also doing this organically and biodynamically - using herbal teas to prevent damping off, using organic nutrients, etc. For anyone planning a big garden, starting your own strong and healthy seedlings is imperative! Registration closes 3/2/15. 

Fee: $36 (online cost is $38.50 to cover fees).

Catskill Native Plant Society presents “Following in the Bartrams’ Footsteps: Contemporary Botanical Artists Explore the Bartrams’ Legacy,” an illustrated talk with Carol Woodin, Exhibitions Director for the American Society of Botanical Artists.

Carol will be talking about America’s “founding gardeners,” John and William Bartram, their plant-gathering expeditions (including trips to the Catskills, which we featured in a 2014 CNPS hike), and their impact on botanical art.

Carol Woodin is one of the world’s most accomplished botanical artists, holding a gold medal for her work from the Royal Horticultural Society, but that is only one of many accomplishments in a life that has included working as a tractor-trailer driver, being a survey cartographer, and doing just about anything to find orchids in their native habitats. She currently resides in the Rondout Valley and has shared her plant knowledge on several Catskill Native Plant Society hikes.

Come on out and join us for a delightful evening of botanical art, history, and appreciation of our local landscape. We will also be trying our hand at mixing “health tonicks” from a Bartram family recipe."

The goal is for each participant to go home with a bunch of working ideas and processes that can be applied to making a backyard or small farm or homestead more productive, sustainable and artisanal. You'll have a clear idea of what Permaculture means and whether you'd like to further pursue learning about Permaculture Design. Registration closes 3/7/15.

Hudson Valley Garden Association is excited to host the first annual HVGA Garden Community Lecture in celebration of one of our nation's earliest and most celebrated landscape designers, Newburgh-native Andrew Jackson Downing, and his 200th birthday in 2015.

We welcome Dr. Harvey K. Flad who will present "From Landscape Gardener to Landscape Architect: Andrew Jackson Downing and the Development of Landscape Design in America."

This lecture will review the biography of Andrew Jackson Downing (1815-1852) and his 1841 Treatise on Landscape Gardening in North America. Downing's gardening principles integrated the picturesque and the beautiful to domesticate the American home. We will examine "Springside," the summer home of Matthew Vassar across Route 9 from Locust Grove, as a fully documented National Historic Landmark Downing landscape. Refreshments to follow.

Fee: FREE
Pre-registration is required. Seating is limited, please email laura@hvga.org if you RSVP but are unable to attend.

This is one of our big gardening passions - we love bugs. The focus of this workshop is to garden for your good bugs - provide them what they need (and maybe a little extra) and regain balance in your garden to prevent the bad bugs from damaging your harvest. We'll get into native pollinators, honey bees, butterflies, predatory bugs and mites, etc. Registration closes 4/8/10.

For over 8 years, we have been perfecting seed-starting, and I have come to realize that most of what home gardeners are told about it isn't complete and actually leads to failure or weak, unsatisfying seedlings. In this workshop, we'll demonstrate and go over how to start your own seeds professionally and successfully. We are also doing this organically and biodynamically - using herbal teas to prevent damping off, using organic nutrients, etc. For anyone planning a big garden, starting your own strong and healthy seedlings is imperative! Registration closes 4/13/15.

This workshop focuses on 10 common herbs that you probably have growing in your yard (or, if not, are easy to grow!) that can add SO MUCH to your household's health and well being:
- Plantain (Plantago)
- Mint (Mentha)
- Self-Heal or Heal-All (Prunella)
- Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis)
- Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare)
- Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale)
- Nettle (Urtica dioica)
- Chickweed (Stellaria media)
- Parsley (Petroselinum hortense)
- Oregano/Marjoram (Origanum vulgare/Origanum majorana)

These are all easy to grow (some have been classified as weeds). I find them to be cornerstones of herbal well-being, and I want to share how I use them in my household and everyday life. We'll go over identifying, how to harvest, drying, tincturing, freezing, etc. And we'll create some remedies, teas, and recipes using them to their fullest potential. Registration closes 4/15/15.

Fee: $36 (online cost is $38.50 to cover fees).

The Brassicas are all the dark leafy greens: kales, collards, cabbages, pak koi, broccoli, raabs, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, mustards, etc. The Alliums are all the onion-flavored plants - leeks, chives, scallions, welsh onions, walking onions, bulbing onions, etc.

We'll also have spinach, chards, escaroles, endives, radicchios, chicories, parsleys, lettuces, many thymes, a couple oreganos, a couple sages, cilantro, flowers like violas and violets, celeries, cresses, dill, lovage, mints, many of our hard to find European greens like erba stella and agretti. We may have asparagus crowns and seed potatoes as well. And we plan to have a lovely selection of cold hardy perennials and native plants and berries.

Plants enjoy tea too! Just as with human skin, plants can absorb many nutrients through the pores on their leaves. Plant teas are applied by spraying the plants foliar areas with nutrient dense brewed liquid fertilizer - or tea. We'll go over the basics of brewing plants teas made from aged manures, compost, and various herbs. And we'll also discuss the Biodynamic 500 prep. Making your own teas is simple and easy. The cost is minimal. And the whole process is so much more clean, graceful, and effective than buying expensive commercial fertilizers. Registration closes 4/26/15.

Fee: $36 (online cost is $38.50 to cover fees).

Join us for some FREE plant-lovin’ fun at the 4th annual Hudson Valley Garden Association Plant Swap. Hosted by SUNY Orange Sustainability. Plant drop-off and sorting 9am-10am; swapping begins at 10am. Rain or Shine. All are welcome - bring a friend, but not your pet.

What’s a Plant Swap? Plant swaps are a fun way to get rid of any extra plants you may have (perennial divisions, seedlings, pack annuals, unwanted houseplants) in exchange for new plants by trading with other gardeners.

Tips for first time swappers:
- No invasives
- Plants should be in a container
- Label plants as well as possible (annual/perennial, size, sun/shade, bloom color, etc)
- Bring flats or trays to bring your new plants home in
- Plants should be well watered, pest and disease free
- Dig plants a few days in advance so they can recover, and water well

Parking available on South Street, or across street in Lot #5.

Fee: FREE
RSVP appreciated, email laura@hvga.org.

As you get your garden ready for spring this year, don’t forget to put aside some plants for the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County Master Gardener's Great Plant Swap and Sale.

Here’s how the swap works:
- Plants to swap can be dropped off Saturday morning between 9:00am and 10:00am. Swappers will receive vouchers for the number of plants they drop off. No early birds please!
- Swappers return at 11:00am to swap vouchers for plants.
- At 11:30 the swap will open to the public for the plant sale.
- Plants must be labeled by name and color of flower, in pots, well cared for, healthy and not on the New York State list of Invasive Plants. Master Gardeners will refuse any plants not meeting these criteria and will also limit certain varieties. No more than 12 of the same plant type will be accepted.

Master Gardener volunteers will also be answering gardening questions and have lots of gardening information available. So, pot up your divisions or extra plants a few weeks before the swap date, label them, and bring them to exchange for vouchers.

Fee: FREE
