Description of the Event:
July 12 – Rosina Newton—Basic Sustainability: Composting & Organic Gardening -
Some beginning gardeners want to go organic, but don't know where to start. Some long-time gardeners are comfortable using weed and feed and synthetic bug killers, and fear if they stop using them, their home will be overrun with pests. How do we "go green" in our landscape and gardens, and still maintain a beautiful yard and garden? Rosina Newton will share the what, where, why, and how of organic gardening and composting so that everyone can achieve the greatest success – whether starting new or transitioning to "green."
She has a B.S. in Horticulture from Texas A&M University, and has over 15 years' experience advising gardeners from all walks of life how to be successful using sustainable methods. Rosina is currently wearing several hats at Tollgate, including Evenings in the Garden Coordinator and being one of several educational leaders for Youth Programs.
