A workshop called “Climate Smart Gardening” will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Dec. 9 at the Frank Bratt Agricultural Center, 3542 Turner Rd., Jamestown.

It is presented by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County’s Agriculture Program as part of their 2017-2018 L.E.A.F. (Learn. Empower. Achieve. Farm.) Workshop Series.

“Climate Smart Gardening” will focus on how climate change affects our gardening practices. Participants will learn more about the key concepts associated with gardening in a warming world. This workshop will cover the key concepts such as systems thinking that are fundamental to understanding the challenge of the changing climate and how it relates to gardening skills and techniques. The material for “Climate Smart Gardening” is based on curriculum designed by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Monroe County in partnership with the Cornell Garden-Based Learning program. The L.E.A.F. workshops are designed to be interactive, so participants are encouraged to bring their questions and ideas.

The workshop will be led by Katelyn Walley-Stoll, Farm Business Management Educator with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County.

Light refreshments will be offered.

The cost to attend is $5 per family, payable by cash or check that evening.

Pre-registration is required prior to the workshop to allow for adequate time to prepare printed resources and materials.
