MSU Extension brown-bag lunch gardening series - "Talk gardening with Larry"
Beginning in October, Michigan State University Extension Educator Larry Dyer will host an informational series, "Talk gardening with Larry". This will be a brown bag series on the second Friday of each month (except December) from 12:00-12:50 p.m., in room 110 Mikanuk on the campus of Bay Mills Community College. Each date will have a topic with handouts, but after a brief presentation the conversation can go to whatever people have on their minds and in their gardens. So bring your brown bag lunch and come “talk gardening with Larry”.
