Garland speaks about Rogers Farm Fall Field Day on WABI

Kate Garland, a horticulturist with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, visited the studio of WABI (Channel 5) to talk about Fall Field Day at Rogers Farm Demonstration Garden in Old Town. UMaine Extension Master Gardener Volunteers will celebrate the growing season during the event from 10 a.m.–2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10. The field day will feature workshops, activities, live bluegrass music and homemade food. Workshop topics include growing garlic, dividing peonies and identifying toxic plants in the landscape. There will be a demonstration beehive, door prizes and children’s activities, including face painting and a garden scavenger hunt. “The garden is really in its prime,” Garland said. “Our Master Gardener Volunteers put in thousands of hours into this garden. … They put a lot of time and energy into this garden, so we’re eager to have a lot of folks come and see the space.” The event is free and open to the public, and will be held rain or shine.
