CAMGA Lunch and Learn to feature heirloom gardens

Published 2:26pm Saturday, August 17, 2013

Anyone who has thought of establishing a Southern heirloom garden in their landscape will want to attend the Central Alabama Master Gardeners Association September Lunch and Learn.
Jane Mobley of Wetumpka, a CAMGA member, will be the speaker and provide information on planning and planting a heirloom garden.
She will explain and give examples of such gardens and discuss the influences that led to this type of garden. In addition to answering the question “Why have a Southern heirloom garden today,” Mobley will describe the characteristics, discuss the plants that could be included and talk about how to go about developing one.
Lunch and Learn is a free program offered by ­CAMGA. Attendees can bring their own lunch. Beverages are provided at no charge.
The Lunch and Learn series has been held monthly in Wetumpka since January, and a variety of garden topics have been featured. The series attracts 30-50 attendees on the second Wednesday of each month.
The upcoming session will be held Sept. 11, from 12 to 1 p.m. For more information, call 334-567-6301 or visit the Extension Office on Queen Ann Road in Wetumpka.
