Hydrangeas can be the main attraction of your landscape with their big blooms and contrasting foliage.

There are several varieties of hydrangeas and proper pruning and care will result in gorgeous shrubs.

Gardening In The Time Of Laura Ingalls Wilder
Gardening In The Time Of Laura Ingalls Wilder

Cost: Free

For those familiar with the Little House on the Prairie books based on the life of Laura Ingalls Wilder, imagine her looking out of her Plum Creek bedroom window… what would she see?  What type of garden would be growing in her yard?  Gardens in that day had to supply fresh food for the summer, enough food to be stored for cold months, herbs for medicine, and, if you were lucky, surplus to sell or trade.  Step back in time as we learn how pioneer gardens sustained the people in the western expanse of the United States, what gardens looked like, what type of plants thrived in household gardens, as well as how plants were grown, used and stored. Lastly, you will learn about ways to add Indiana Native Plants to your current garden, as well as information on the Dearborn County SWCD Backyard “Cost Sharing” program that partners with homeowners to make those improvements to traditional yards. Included in this program will be samples of native plants available in that time: seed packets and plant plugs available while supplies last. Sponsored by: Purdue Extension/Dearborn County / Master Gardeners.

Speakers:

Christina Emery-Youngpeter, BA, Archaeologist / Garden Manager, Paleoethnobotanist / Archaeological Research Institute

Jennifer Hughes- Storm Water Coordinator / Dearborn County SWCD
