Wake Up Your Garden Webinar
University of Arizona Cooperative Extension Gila County presents: Garden and Country Extension Webinar Series. From February 11 to April 15, 2021, I am proud to be hosting the spring gardening classes for the Payson Community Garden in northern Gila County. You are invited to join us and learn along with Payson’s community gardeners. Classes include soil building and its great benefits, ways to have healthy plants throughout the garden season, how to keep bugs and disease away, and harvesting at the right time. Presenters will be available for Q&A to discuss applying practices to your situation.
Featured Topic: Wake Up Your Garden
Featured Speaker: Glen McCombs, the owner of Plant Fair Nursery in Star Valley, has more than a green thumb. He may very well have gardening genes. "I’m a fourth-generation nurseryman,” he says, “my great-grandfather, Jeremiah McCombs, started a nursery in Ontario, Canada in 1890." Glen has worked in the nursery business all his life, except for four years in the armed services. Thanks to years of experience at Tip Top Nursery in Phoenix and people he came to know in the industry, Glen says he was able to increase significantly the plant palate offered in Payson when he opened his store in 1983.
Webinar Overview: Glen will provide a brief welcome to the Payson Community Garden. He will focus on "waking-up" your garden from winter and preparing it for spring and summer gardening. He will discuss organic fertilizer, soil preparation, worms, and other timely activities for your garden. Be sure to take advantage of the Q&A chat session to ask Glen any specific questions you have about gardening too.
