On Thursday, January 26 at 7 p.m., DeKalb Extension Service kicks off its 2012 Home Garden Training Series at the Extension Training Center, 4380 Memorial Dr., Decatur. The evening’s topic is Basics of Home Landscape Design. Instructors are Lynwood Blackmon and Sarah Brodd of the Extension Horticulture staff. Whether it’s time to do a new landscape or revive an old one, you need to make a plan.
Karen Lindauer, an avid gardener and active member of the Georgia Native Plant Society, will present a program on “Creating Habitat Using Native Plants” to the Mountain Shadow Garden Club at their January meeting. Following early retirement from the CDC, Karen and her husband moved from the Morningside area in Atlanta to Tucker, where they purchased a house on a nearly 2-acre property.
