Last week I had the pleasure of visiting with Barbara Coakley of Gardener's Place. This is the new garden store that has popped up in downtown Greeley on 9th Street. In her shop she has a selection of tools and gardening supplies. I was pleased to see she offered alternatives to chemical fertilizers and pesticides. She will be offering gardening classes throughout June and July. Her schedule is as follows:
June 11 Composting and Soil Treatment
June 18 Proper Potting Techniques
June 25 Plant Placement
July 9 Butterfly Gardening
July 16 Creating Year Round Interest
All Classes are from 9-10am and cost $35.00
Barbara was energetic and had a lot to say. From what I understand her personal garden is close to the shop and she may be offering tours with some of her classes. Be sure to pop in and say HELLO!
