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.

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.
