Learn With Us, June 18 – June 24

Durham Garden Forum Tuesday, June 20 from 6:30-8:00 PM at the Doris Duke Center, Sarah P. Duke Gardens. There is no charge for parking.

Our topic this month is “Sustainable Turf Strategies” presented by Grady Miller, Professor, Crop and Soil Sciences, North Carolina State University. Turf functions in many ways to provide open space, pathways and creating a frame that many people enjoy. Sustainable turf strategies begin with selecting the best grass for your location and then managing the turf to reduce water and chemical use while maintaining the health of the yard and reducing organic yard waste. Grady will give us an update on a variety of sustainable practices.

We had another active Member Plant Giveaway Table in May and will continue with this feature in June. Please remember to bring your plant is some form of container, label if possible and remove at the end of the evening if it has not been taken.

Lecture fee: $10 per meeting for non-members. Forum members free with $25 annual membership, payable to Durham Garden Forum.
