4-H Family FUN Day: 9:30am – 12:30pm

undefinedJoin us for our annual 4-H Family FUN Day at the Master Gardener Plant Sale on Saturday, May 13, 2023!

This year’s event will once again include a variety of hands-on 4-H activities for children, including face painting/tattoos, creepy critters demonstrations, paintball archery, robot demonstrations and several Mother’s Day Make & Take crafts from 9:30am – 12:30pm, organized by Putnam County 4-H youth and volunteers.

The plant sale will feature a huge selection of heirloom and hybrid vegetable plants picked by Master Gardeners for Putnam County gardens. The sale will also include favorites such as colorful annuals, perennials, native pollinator plants and herbs. Load up on Butterfly Weed and Oakleaf hydrangeas to bring vibrant colors to your garden. Or maybe the classic Italian heirloom tomato paste variety “Coure de Toro”, or disease resistant “Rutgers” classic tomato!

undefinedBeautiful pre-planted container gardens, hanging baskets and gardening gifts will be available for that perfect Mother’s Day present.

Cornell trained Master Gardener Volunteers will be on hand to answer questions about planting, nurturing, and harvesting to help Putnam gardeners prepare for a successful growing season. Soil testing will again be offered this year, so interested gardeners are encouraged to bring samples of their garden soil.

The event will be held rain or shine in a covered pavilion at Putnam Veterans Memorial Park, 201 GipsyTrail Road, Carmel, NY, 8:30AM to 12:30PM
