Watauga Cooperative Extension Service will host a reception and presentation on February 25th at 6:00 pm at the Agriculture Conference Center, at 352 Poplar Grove Road in Boone. We will begin with a reception where you can meet our new Consumer Horticulture Agent, Paige Patterson. After the reception Paige will do a presentation on ways to add winter interest to your garden. The Watauga Extension Service will be offering Master Gardener training classes this spring. This event would be a great time to discuss taking part in the training, as well as an opportunity for current Master Gardener volunteers to regroup and plan volunteer activities for the coming gardening season.
