Upcoming Workshops & Events
COVID-19 Update
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Durham Master Gardeners cannot meet publicly to do work in our community. We will continue to answer any gardening questions you may have on our website. We are working on some virtual solutions to our dilemma, and hope you will continue to follow our website, Facebook and Instagram pages, where we will post any announcements.

Do use this time to get out in the garden and do your spring cleanup, but please remember to avoid direct contact with anyone other than your housemates, and always wash your hands when finished.

If you haven’t already, explore ways of having virtual meetings or parties with gardening friends and relatives. Zoom, Facebook Messenger and Apple Facetime all offer great ways of creating group parties. Many of our well-known gardeners are posting garden walk-throughs on their Facebook pages. Our very own Ingrid Janssen is offering weekly tours of her spring garden, and other well known Master Gardeners such as Sean James, Lorraine Johnson and Sophie Bigham are also posting on Facebook. For those of you who wish to explore the world of vegetable gardening, Nikki Jabbour has an amazing Facebook page.

If we all continue to practise physical distancing, and limiting trips outside the home to necessity only, things will get back to normal sooner, and you will have the added benefit of knowing you helped to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community.

Stay healthy and safe, and enjoy your gardens!
