More than 130 Master Gardener volunteers and Extension educators gathered on campus June 20 to 22 to soak up new ideas and information that will help them be more effective in their outreach and education back in their home counties.

Workshop topics included edible landscaping, rain gardens, native plants, companion planting, composting, coping with wildlife problems, permaculture, invasive plants, soil health and more. (View all workshop programs.) Jane Mt Pleasant, Associate Professor in the Department of Horticulture, delivered the keynote talk on Plants and Well-Being.

Attendees braved record-breaking heat to tour Cornell Plantations, Dilmun Hill Student Farm, lawn and flower demonstrations at Bluegrass Lane, local community and school gardens, and more.
