Sign up for a Master Gardener class
LAPEER — The days are getting shorter. The nights are getting cooler. So, it’s time to hang up the hoe and put up the pitchfork. Right?
Nope. It’s time to sign up for the Lapeer County MSU Extension Master Gardener program’s fall Master Gardener class. The class, which will run from 1-4:30 p.m. 11 consecutive Thursdays, will start Sept. 10 at the MSU Extension office, 287 W. Nepessing, Lapeer. The Master Gardener class gives gardeners the opportunity to get good research-based information about all aspects of gardening from soil to trees. An Extension spokesman said it’s a fun, comfortable learning environment for garden lovers from beginners to experts. There is a $275 fee for the classes. Class size is limited, and enrollment ends Aug. 28. Applications are available at the MSU Extension office; at www.msue.msu.edu/lapeer; or calling 810-667-0344. — P.F.
