Purdue Extension is Partnering with Clarksville Parks and Recreation

August 21, 2018

Clark County Extension is collaborating with Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department on their adult education classes starting September to December 2018. As part of this program, Clark County Extension will teach gardening/sustainable natural resource management classes at the Clarksville middle school (101 Ettels Lane, Clarksville). All classes are from 6:30 - 8:30 pm. The schedule is as below:

September 11: What gardeners should know about pest and pest management in the home garden – The place of Integrated Pest Management

October 16: Sustainable gardening in the home garden

November 20: Healing Gardens Part 1 - Basic Design Considerations

December 11: Healing Gardens Part II - Construction of key Components to a healing Garden

There is a nominal fee of $3 for each class to meet the cost of presentation handouts.

If you are a home gardener who wants to learn how to grow vegetables for “healthy eating” or wants to learn how to grow flowers in your garden and/or manage the natural resources available to you for growing plants, these classes are for you. Alternatively, if you want to use gardening as a means to exercise and/or bond with your children and grandchildren, or use gardening for healing purposes, now is the opportunity to acquire some of the skills you need. You only attend the class(es) that meet your needs. 

If you are interested in registering to participate in any of these classes, please visit the Clarksville Parks and Recreation programs website at
