The Penn State Extension Master Gardeners have their schedule set up established for spotlight presentations at the Farmers Market, located at the Liberty Street Parking lot in downtown Warren.
The season starts off with "Composting" and "Preparing Good Gardening Soil." Penn State Extension Master Gardeners, Judy Kepple and Celia Knapp, will share tips on how to improve soil so plants will thrive. And as an added bonus this week, local perennial plants from the Master Gardeners gardens will be available for sale.
This year's schedule offers topics on a wide variety of subjects. Master Gardeners will be available to help you with gardening questions and problems. There will also be soil-testing kits available for sale. These kits will help you to determine how to improve your soil for healthier plants and a better growing environment.
