NEW YORK- Senator Jeff Klein (D-Bronx/Westchester) will sponsor a free home gardening program for residents of the 34th District at the New York Botanical Garden starting March 6th.
The program, now in its tenth year, includes four classes—Earth-Friendly Gardening Basics, Easy-Care Flower Gardens, Organic Herb and Vegetable Gardening and Low-Maintenance Landscaping.
This year, the program will focus on environmentally-friendly gardening and provide participants with free sunflower seeds as part of a Summer Sunflower Contest. A prize will be awarded to the grower of the sunflower with the largest diameter head.
Participants must register for the program in order to attend. Bronx and Westchester residents can expect to receive sign-up forms in their mailboxes starting February 18th. Constituents may also register at [email protected].
“I am pleased to invite all of my constituents to participate in this program. Whether a person is a gardening novice, interested in organic vegetables, or wants to be more eco-friendly, this program has something for everyone,” said Senator Jeff Klein (D-Bronx/Westcheter).
