Leaf Impressions

Penn State Master Gardeners will offer a 45-minute workshop on how to create concrete leaf impressions, as part of the monthly Evenings in the Garden program, September 5.   The class will run from 6:15 till 7:00 p.m. at the Berks County Ag Center, and will result in a plate-sized impression for each participant to take home.  There is a $5 per head fee and seating is limited.  Reservations are required by calling 610-378-1327.Penn State Master Gardener Chris Simmons will be instructing for the workshop.  Participants are encouraged to wear clothes that can get dirty, as this is a hands-on workshop.  Protective gloves will be provided, as will appropriate leaves that lend themselves to this craft. The free Evenings in the Garden event runs from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and includes garden tours, and a chance to visit with Master Gardeners who will be tending their different garden areas.  They will be able to describe what they are doing, how, and why, and can provide tips for better gardening. There is no admission fee for Evenings in the Garden, only for the optional workshop. Visitors may drop in for a few minutes, or may choose to stay and learn over the two hours. Among the garden areas within the Demonstration Garden are a rock garden, a native plant garden, vegetable garden, an annual trial garden, the Woods Edge Garden, an herb garden and several areas of larger landscape plants.   The Berks County Ag Center is handicapped accessible and all parking is free.  For more information, call 610- 378-1327.
