I’m in The New River Valley the rest of the week attending Master Gardener College thanks to a scholarship from the Southside Master Gardeners Association!

I’m writing from my sister’s Cafe & Bakery this morning, but later this morning and Thursday I’m in intensive classes to become a VA Land Steward! It’s 9-5 lecture today, but tomorrow we go off campus for a “Management Through Fire” demo. Cool!

MG College proper starts Friday and the agenda, including my electives, will be:

  • Natures Sustainable System: A Gardener’s Primer to Understanding Flows, Cycles, and Succession
  • How Plants Got Their Stripes, Spits, and Blotches
  • How Do You Respond When Someone Asks You “So what?” 
  • Tree Biology Through the Seasons
  • Let’s Talk Firewise
  • How We Hurt the Trees We Love: A Caregivers Dilemma
  • Genetic Engineering: What It Is and How It Works
  • Work Smarter Not Harder—Weed Management
  • Land Care: What Can You Do Now? 
  • Slow Gardening: How We Fit OURSELVES In With It All

So that’s the plan, and we start in 30 minutes! More to come, especially on my Instagram—follow @bencapozzi for more!

This blog is a labor of love. If you like what you find here, you might consider leaving a tip to keep the blog going or to support my biophilia. You can email (yep, email!) a buck or two using Square Cash to ben @ the main street gardener (dot) com. You can also check out things and businesses I recommend, or buy some of my Goods. Thanks!
