The ISU Scott County Extension and Outreach Master Gardeners will present ‘Growing Along the River’ Focus on Fall, an all-day conference with presentations about landscaping and gardening. It is not too late to learn more about ‘putting your garden to bed’ and how to enhance and manage it this fall.

Keynote speaker, Rick Darke, is a landscape design consultant, author, lecturer, and photographer based in Pennsylvania who blends art, ecology, and cultural geography in the creation and conservation of livable landscapes.  He will give two talks.  Attendees will also be able to select an additional four classes with expert speakers on topics such as gardening with conifers, smartphone photography, Bonsai, Orchids, designing seasonal containers and many more.

What you learn at the conference may even help you take advantage of the end of season sales at the garden centers!  You can also find us on Facebook at ISU Scott County Extension and Outreach  or call 563-359-7577 for more information. (Lunch included)  Cost: $40.

Registration opens August 1 and closes September 28.
