Go from boards to harvest with UMaine Extension garden series

University of Maine Cooperative Extension’s five-session class covering raised bed and container gardening starts 9–11 a.m. May 18 at the Somerset County Extension office, 7 County Drive, Skowhegan.

UMaine Extension staff and Master Gardener volunteers will lead the hands-on series; remaining sessions will be held June 15, July 13, Aug. 17 and Sept. 14, at the same time and location. Participants will help build raised-bed, square-foot containers, then plant, maintain and harvest vegetables from them.

The $20 fee covers all materials. Registration is online. For more information, or to request a disability accommodation, contact Tammy Bodge-Terry at 474.9622 or 800.287.1495 (toll-free in Maine).
