Carroll County GIEI 2012 Program Begins

Carroll County Master Gardener & chef extraordinaire Henry Lysy prepares a delicious treat of Potato Leek soup during the team’s 2012 educational GIEI kickoff. This year’s launch saw fifty-four (54) attendees learn to do soil analysis, soil amendment, soil assessment and integrated pest management. The team has a robust schedule including four additional three hour sessions to include composting, raised bed gardening, herbs, small fruits, extending the season, seed starting, container gardening, edible landscaping and pollinators. The program resumes with classes from 9AM till Noon on Jan.14th, Jan. 21st, Mar. 3rd and April 7th. Henry plans a special recipe each session. What a great kick-off Carroll GEIE team.
