Kure Beach Community Center Garden Lecture Series April 21
On Saturday, April 21, 2012, from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a. m., Kure Beach Community Center will host the second in an ongoing series of educational lectures by the North Carolina Cooperative Extension's Speakers Bureau Programs. Speakers from the Extension's Master Gardeners program will address a variety of plant-related topics and information to participants that can help average homeowners manage their landscapes. The Center's second presentation is "Krazy Containers," which discusses how to successfully garden in containers of any size or sort. Container requirement, watering and fertilization strategies are covered in this presentation. This lecture will be especially valuable to people who have a small yard or no yard, but have patios and decks on which containers can be used successfully to grow both flowers and vegetables. Container gardening has never been as popular as it is today because it fits in with so many aspects of living at the beach. A well-planted container will also add beauty and variety to any outdoor space.
On Saturday, May 5, 2012, from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a. m., Kure Beach Community Center will host the third in an ongoing series of educational lectures by the North Carolina Cooperative Extension's Speakers Bureau Programs. The Center's third presentation is "Gardening with Native Plants in the Cape Fear Region," which addresses the question: "A myriad of different plants grow well in this area of the country, so why prefer natives over imports?" It describes the benefits of using native plant varieties and basics of creating a native habitat in your own yard that many species of birds and butterflies will be drawn to.
Also included is an illustrated gallery of native species of trees, shrubs, vines and perennials for the gardener's consideration when going native. The lectures are presented by using PowerPoint slides with many colorful pictures and provide an entertaining topic overview with enough technical detail to be helpful, yet not overwhelming. The Kure Beach Community Center is located at 118 North Avenue in Kure Beach. For additional information, call the Center's Message Line at 910-450-8944 and calls will be returned.
A $5.00 donation would be appreciated to help defray costs. The Public is welcome.
