Walk in the Garden series offered

The University of Minnesota Extension – Anoka County Master Gardener volunteer program is sponsoring A Walk in the Garden educational series of gardening classes at the Bunker Hills Activities Center, Andover.

Six classes are scheduled throughout the summer on select Wednesday evenings in the Veteran’s Peace and Master Gardener demonstration garden south of the activities center from 7 to 8 p.m. as follows:

• 2012 color combinations in the Veteran’s Memorial display garden, July 11.

• Gardens of the night, July 25.

• Garden scene investigators: exploring the creepy crawlies in the garden, Aug. 8.

• Gardening to attract hummingbirds and butterflies, Aug. 22.

Classes are taught by Anoka County Master Gardener volunteers and include many gardening tips and University of Minnesota research-based information.

These classes immediately follow the plant and insect diagnostic clinics, also held at the Bunker Hills Activities Center.

Classes are free, but pre-registration is required due to space limitations. Donations to the program are welcome. Call 763-755-1280 to reserve a space.

A copy of the brochure is available at http://www.extension.umn.edu/county/Anoka or http://blog.lib.umn.edu/mgweb/anoka and lists complete class descriptions.
