Purdue Extension - Allen County is hosting an on-farm food safety training for produce direct marketers at 7 p.m., March 27, at the Purdue Extension office.

Spring Garden Series Flyer
The 2017 Spring Garden Series will take place Thursday evenings in April. Sessions will feature a tree pruning workshop, how to make hypertufa containers, leaf impression stones, and rain barrels. You are welcome to do all four sessions, or just the sessions of interest to you. Participants will make their own hypertufa container, leaf impression stone, and rain barrel during the workshops.
Local farmers are waiting for warmer temperatures and drying conditions to get in the fields. But, we live in Indiana, and we know that favorable weather windows sometimes do not last long.

Recent damaging winds have some homeowners scrambling to repair homes or other buildings, and they may also be wondering what to do with damaged landscape trees. Not to be a pessimist, but as an Indiana resident, we can just about count on a few more spring storms, can't we?
