About

 

Clark County Extension is collaborating with Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department on their adult education classes starting September to December 2019. As part of this program, Clark County Extension will teach gardening/sustainable natural resource management classes at the Clarksville middle school. The schedule is as below (All times are 6:30-8:30pm):

 September 24: All about composting – Making a nutrient rich compost for your garden

October 15: Growing vegetables anywhere and anytime without soil – The basics of Home hydroponics

November 12: Making your indoor plants look as beautiful as your outdoor plants is not rocket science - "Managing House Plants”

December 10: Enjoying butterflies and birds from the comfort of your home – Basics of Butterfly and Bird gardening

 

There is a nominal fee of $5 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 want to learn how to grow flowers in your garden or indoors and 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 therapeutic purposes, now is the opportunity to acquire 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 https://webtrac.clarksvilleparks.com/wbwsc/webtrac.wsc/search.html?module=AR&type=HMGA&SessionID=43881b4ab7da479878bd8eb8449133e254f5d757cc3584662c626ea30476983996fca66aac854080217f7a4ab7987324fdbf95e81e5ec2b5fea2642450606b9c
