WICHITA — Plan now to attend the 2022 Design & Grow Gardening Workshop, scheduled for Saturday, March 5th, 2022, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  The workshop will provide ideas and information for beginning and seasoned gardeners alike.  Attendees will have the opportunity to learn, collect new ideas, and find inspiration for both the garden & landscape. 

This year’s event will offer limited (and socially distant) seating for those who would like to attend in person, and also a virtual option for those who prefer to attend from home via Zoom. Zoom links and handouts will be sent to Zoom participants prior to the workshop. For in-person attendees, the event will be hosted at:

Sedgwick County Extension Education Center, 4-H Hall

The Design & Grow Gardening Workshop will include the following topics/presentations:

  • Bug-O-Mania: Get to Know the Good & Bad “Bugs” in the Landscape – Learn about the major beneficial insects commonly found in the landscape. Dr. Raymond Cloyd, KSU Horticulture Entomology/Plant Protection Specialist, will also share how to distinguish them from the top 10 garden insect/mite pests that you may want to manage.
  • Gardening the Naturalistic Way – Explore this trending gardening style with Extension Master Gardener Laura Knight, and discover how native and non-native plants can increase biodiversity, provide better habitat for fauna, and increase year-round interest in our gardens.
  • 10 Critical Steps for Growing Healthy Trees & Shrubs – Learn about the important steps to follow for growing healthier trees & shrubs in your landscape, in order to improve plant growth. Matthew McKernan, Horticulture Extension Agent, will share tips for planting and caring for your trees & shrubs.
