Extension service calendar offers gardening tips

November 17, 2018

HUNTINGTON — As interest in growing food and gardening continues to rise, WVU Extension Service is helping new and seasoned gardeners gain tips, educational information and more via the 2019 garden calendar.

The calendar, themed “Back to Garden Basics,” features information on how to pick and enhance soil, choose a garden site, create a pollinator habitat, grow fruits and vegetables in small spaces, watering, canning and more.

The calendar also offers bonus materials and highlights that include growing advice, pest management tips and recipes from WVU Extension Service experts. Beginning in early 2019, the calendar also will be available online and will feature bonus articles geared toward helping growers make the most of their gardening efforts.

To obtain a copy of the calendar, while supplies last, or learn more about gardening and healthy lifestyles, contact the WVU Cabell County Extension Service office at 750 Fifth Avenue, Room 309, Huntington, WV 25701.

Visit WVU Extension Service online and follow @WVUCabellExt on Facebook to get additional tips and information.

2019 Garden calendars are also available, while supplies last, at the Cabell County public libraries, Bridgeport Equipment and Tool in Huntington, Farm House in Milton, Valley Cash Feed in Barboursville, and The Wild Ramp in Huntington.
