Saturday’s class at Schoolhouse 18 near Marshall will cover herbs, such as chives.
Local Virginia Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners offer two upcoming classes:

• “Herbs” at 1 p.m. Saturday, June 26, at Schoolhouse 18 east of Marshall.

• “Insect Pests in the Home Vegetable Garden” from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 29, on Zoom.

Master Gardener volunteers and longtime herb enthusiasts Terri Bazel and Janet Nixdorff will lead Saturday’s workshop. They will cover how herbs provide beauty, color, scent and flavor to your garden.

Volunteers will provide a tour of the small herb garden at the historic schoolhouse. The instructors will demonstrate growing techniques, harvesting, preserving and using the herbs you grow.

The one-hour class will take place outdoors, with some seats provided, but attendees may bring lawn chairs.

In the June 29 class, Jon Traunfeld of the University of Maryland will focus on organic control of some of the most common pests in the vegetable garden.

An expert on home gardening and pest management, Mr. Traunfeld has appeared in the New York Times, and on The Martha Stewart Show. In his university work, he focuses on small-scale food production through the “Grow It Eat It” program.

The program is free. To register, click here.
