It’s hard to believe that this will be the 7th year for that great summer gardening series, Lunch and Learn, which begins Saturday, April 29th in the Gazebo at the Port Royal Farmers’ Market and continues each Saturday until August 26th. This award winning series of classes, workshops and lectures is free to the public and no registration is required.

The 2017 series will ably be kicked off by noted Landscape Designer, J. Weidner, who will address the damage done by Hurricane Matthew and have suggestions on how to reassess your landscape for its new look. Master Gardeners and other professionals share their skills and knowledge to help the Lowcountry gardener meet the challenges of this hot and humid climate. Door prizes are abundant, and chances are good that you’ll go home with a unique plant grown right here in Beaufort County.

Stop at the Farmers’ Market for a great lunch, and come to the Gazebo with a folding chair at noon, and share a little Lunching and Learning with people who love gardening as much as you do!

The Master Gardeners also hold a Plant Clinic at the Farmers’ Market from 9:00 until noon. They will answer your questions, and identify plants, pests and diseases. The Plant Clinic and Lunch and Learn are brought to you by the volunteers of the Lowcountry Master Gardener Association.
