OLD FORGE — A free Fall Planting Workshop, led by Bernie Armata from Cornell Cooperative Extension, will be held at the Old Forge Library, 220 Crosby Blvd., on Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 6:30 p.m. Armata will discuss plants that are ideal for fall planting in Zone 3 and planting techniques, as well as a popular local topic, nuisance wildlife.

The workshop is sponsored by the Old Forge Garden Club, a local group of gardeners who meet to share their love of plants and gardening through a variety of informational programs, workshops, and field trips. Projects include beautification work at Point Park, a plant sale at the farmers’ market, and sharing blooms and cheer with the Lakeside Terrace residents.

The club meets on the second Tuesday of the month from May to October at 10 a.m. at View arts center on Route 28.  New members are welcome.
