Learn With Us, week of April 12

Getting Dirty Radio Show – APRIL 14 – The American Sycamore tree, sometimes know as a Button Tree, has many charms.  While its huge size makes it a better candidate for an open landscape, this tree adds a lot of interest to any area.  These giants have hollow trunks and stories abound of people taking shelter inside of Sycamore trees.  Carol McPherson, an Orange County Master Gardener Volunteer, joins our show in order to introduce us to this woody giant.  http://wp.me/p4zI4W-dP Getting Dirty airs at 2PM on WCOM 103.5 FM or anytime at http://gettingdirtyradioshow.org/

Getting Dirty Radio Show – APRIL 17  – Our Master Gardener program visited the Bayer Bee Care Center to learn about the research they conduct and what we can all do to help honeybees. While Durham is an urban county, Lise Jenkins learned that there are over 200 beekeepers in her area and there’s a lot we all can do to help honeybees thrive. http://wp.me/p4zI4W-dT  Getting Dirty airs at 2PM on WCOM 103.5 FM or anytime at http://gettingdirtyradioshow.org/
