Each year the Delaware County Master Gardeners hold an educational lecture series “Mondays in March”. These talks are designed to both educate and entertain anyone interested in gardening and growing. All programs are held at 7:00 p.m. at Our Savior Lutheran Church, 116 Guetzko Court in Manchester. The series this year will celebrate the twenty-first year of the project and promises to be filled with a lot of great information, instruction, and fun. The first lecture will be held on Monday, March 2, and will continue each Monday throughout the month with a different topic and speaker each night. Weather related cancellations will be announced on KMCH radio. A $2.00 donation is encouraged to help cover costs.
Please listen to KMCH (94.7) for weather announcements.
