SITKA - The SEARHC Diabetes and Health Promotion programs have teamed up with master gardener Bob Gorman of the Sitka office of the University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension Service to offer a series of four free garden workshops during the summer of 2009. The last workshop of the series takes place from 1:30 to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 9.
The class will be hosted at the SEARHC Community Health Services Building third-floor conference room in Sitka (1212 Seward Dr.). But participants in other communities will join by video or audioconference from the SEARHC Juneau Administration Building Conference Room, the SEARHC Jessie Norma Jim Health Center in Angoon, the Haines Borough Library, the SEARHC Kake Health Center and the SEARHC Alicia Roberts Medical Center in Klawock.
The topics for the Sept. 9 workshop are late-winter plantings; trees and shrubs; house plants and indoor gardening; and winterizing your garden.
For details about the workshop, contact SEARHC Diabetes Grant Coordinator Maybelle Filler at 966-8739 or firstname.lastname@example.org. People who aren't able to attend the workshop at one of the listed video or audio-conferencing sites should contact Maybelle for other options. Maybelle also has extra copies of the handouts for those who miss any of the garden workshops.
