Laramie County Advanced Master Gardener Mike Heath is offering a series of free workshops on gardening-related topics over the next weeks.

In addition to being a Master Gardener through the University of Wyoming Extension Program, Heath is also a vegetable judge at the Laramie County Fair and is the Floriculture Superintendant at the fair. He has been gardening for 45 years. He also is a guest on a monthly gardening program on KGAB radio.

The first workshop will deal with Greenhouses, high tunnels, and hoop houses on April 6 at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Gardening 101 and container gardening will be offered at 2 p.m. on April 13 and again on April 14. The workshops will be offered at Heath's home. He asks that you call 640-2445 for directions and further details.

More Workshops Are Planned
