The issue that's currently at the printer, March-April '06, is our first to cover the Syracuse area. During the early part of the year I spent a lot of time picking the brains of people who know what's going on in the CNY gardening scene, looking for interesting events, etc. Almost every one mentioned the April 1 Annual Spring Gardening Seminar sponsored by the Men's Garden Club of Syracuse and Phoenix Flower Farm, "Let's Go Native."
Guess what I left out of the calendar?
This seminar, held at the Craftsman Inn in Fayetteville, will feature Bill Cullina of the New England Wild Flower Society's Garden in the Woods and Don Leopold, who is a professor at SUNY-ESF and the author of Native Plants for the Northeast.
I haven't been able to track anyone down from the Men's Garden Club, but if you are interested, try contacting Helen Schueler at Phoenix through their Web site, Phoenixflowerfarm.com.
