The Lafayette County Master Gardeners announce the second in their Spring Gardening Lecture Series.

On Thursday, April 3 at noon in the Public Library Auditorium on Bramlett Boulevard, Gladne Harris of Harris Family Farms will speak about organic gardening.

Harris is a founding member of the Master Gardeners of Lafayette County and has over 35 years of experience in organic gardening. She and her husband own and operate Harris Family Farms, a Naturally Grown Certified farm.

The farm grows seeds and garlic for a US-based seed company. They also sell organic seeds, garlic and non-GMO plants throughout the year at the Oxford Community Market every Tuesday afternoon.

Harris’ presentation will focus on the principles of organic gardening. She will share with us her many years of experience in this field. His presentation will have something for the novice gardener as well as those with years of experience.

Some of the topics she will cover will be proper soil preparation and management, watering and moisture management, ecological pest control and many more.

The presentation is open to the public without admission fees.
