Summer is filled with ISU Extension horticulture and gardening-related webinars, workshops, tours and other events throughout the state: from a garden walk in Linn County to a succulent garden workshop in Clayton County or home demonstration garden field days at ISU research farms.
ISU Extension county offices are hosting Iowa Master Gardener Gardening Green 2010 webinars. Organic Gardening for Homeowners on July 27 will outline the basics on how to manage the landscape organically, including pest control for vegetable gardening and ornamentals. Rain Gardens in Iowa on Aug. 24 will illustrate the design and maintenance of rain gardens as a best management practice for storm water management in the landscape.
