After the sudden freeze in late December 2022, many of us gardeners realized we are not prepared for extreme weather events, and our gardens are paying the price.

If you fall into this category, please join us at our November monthly educational program on Preparing for Extreme Weather  – A Guide for Gardeners –

Presentation by Holly Votaw, Transylvania Master Gardener

Tuesday, November 14th, 10-11 a.m.

Community Services Building Conference Room

Gardening in Transylvania County can be a challenge at the best of times. What do we do when we are facing:

  • Rapidly falling temperatures
  • Higher-than-average heat waves
  • Drought
  • Hail
  • Flooding
  • Abnormally heavy rainfall
  • High Winds

To learn how to prepare for these weather events and what to do when they happen, please join us for ideas and suggestions on how to be prepared for what Mother Nature sends our way.
