2 days from now


Copake Falls, , , NY 12517
Saturday at 10:00AM - 4:30PM

This is a rare opportunity to spend a whole day with expert seedsmen in an intimate small-group environment, so come prepared with all your questions. The curriculum will be shaped to accommodate the audience, with plenty of back-and-forth time in addition to more structured demonstrations and hands-on “doing.”

With Hudson Valley Seed Library’s co-founder Ken Greene and Doug Muller, who know a thing or two about seed. They farm it organically for a living, and sell it through the Seed Library catalog, now in its 10th year.

Learn how to grow from seed to seed: best practices for starting indoors, direct sowing in the garden, tricks of transplanting and timing, including the use of row covers, pest and disease prevention, the life cycles of popular vegetables, herbs and flowers, how to “select” the best individuals at every stage (and discard the rest!), succession sowing strategies for long harvests of multiple crops…and right through to seed saving at season’s end.

Go home with four six-packs of seedlings you sow yourself, plus a handheld calculator for when to sow what.

Host Margaret Roach, who has been growing from seed for more than 25 years, will be on hand throughout to add to the discussion, and to serve up light breakfast plus a full lunch and afternoon snacks. The workshop takes place at her office in Copake Falls, New York; directions will be sent a week ahead to all registrants.

Fee: $170 (+ online fee)

Have you always wanted to learn how to prune fruit trees? Pruning is an art. No branch should be removed from a tree without a reason. Join us for this workshop to learn how shaping trees through proper pruning practices will help them grow healthy and strong, and prevent potential problems in the future.

Hands on experience in the workshop include:
• The benefits and effects of winter pruning for tree growth
• Evaluating a tree’s natural form and enhancing it through pruning
• Identifying the Central Leader and Tall Spindle
• Making the proper cuts for dead, damaged, and diseased limbs

The workshop will begin with an indoor presentation on pruning techniques and tools. Afterwards participants will be given a hands-on-learning opportunity to practice what they have learned outdoors. Participants are invited and encouraged to ask Will any questions about tree health in general as well. We'll provide the pruning shears, but you're more than welcome to bring your own.

The workshop will be led by Will McCaffrey, expert pruner, Cornell University graduate, formally an Orchard Specialist for Fishkill Farms as well as Red Jacket Orchards, and now farming on his own at Spring Rain Farm.

Fee: $30

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. 

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

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).

With Lee Reich. Gardens are smaller these days, but -- as Europeans have known for centuries -- a small garden is no impediment to fruit growing. Lowbush blueberries, currants, gooseberries, and super dwarf apples are among the fruits that visually and proportionally fit well into small gardens. Planting fruits that double as ornamentals, selection of appropriate varieties, using dwarfing rootstocks, and training plants as espaliers are some of the ways to reap delectable rewards from spaces as small as a balcony to as “large” as a small suburban yard.

Lee Reich, PhD is an avid farmdener (more than a gardener, less than a farmer) with graduate degrees in soil science and horticulture. He is the author of numerous books and his award winning farmden has been featured in publications such as The New York Times and Martha Stewart Living.

We designed this Allium and Brassica Pre-Sale for our gardener and farmer friends who want to plant in stages and will have a nice variety of cold-hardy plants and seedlings for sale that are ready to go in the ground! (Or you can hold them for a bit too.) We'll also have some hardy perennials for sale and some other awesome plants.

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

at 8:00AM - 6:30PM on Thurs

Travel to Wayne, PA for a beautiful house and garden tour. Chanticleer has been called the most romantic, imaginative, and exciting public garden in America. The garden is a study of textures and forms, where foliage trumps flowers, the gardeners lead the design, and even the drinking fountains are sculptural. It is a garden of pleasure and learning, relaxing yet filled with ideas to take home. Tours provide a look into the life of the Rosengarten family and early 20th-century life on the Philadelphia Main Line.

The Chanticleer estate dates from the early 20th century, when land along the Main Line of the Pennsylvania Railroad was developed for summer homes to escape the heat of Philadelphia. Adolph Rosengarten, Sr., and his wife Christine chose the Wayne-St. Davids area to build their country retreat. The family’s pharmaceutical firm would become part of Merck & Company in the 1920s.

Enjoy a late lunch at a nearby restaurant (included in fee), prior to the return to the Desmond Campus.

Fee: $95 Registration deadline: Thurs., June 11
