The cost is $ 20 and is payable in cash or by check at the door. However, advance notification is required. The landscape seminar takes place at the Tom Green 4-H Center, 3168 NUS Highway 67 in San Angelo. Masks are required due to COVID-19 protocols and attendees are required to complete a COVID-19 screening form upon arrival.

AgriLife Extension horticulturist Allison Watkins will be the speaker, and the seminar will focus on post-snow gardening and landscaping advice and focus on landscaping in an earth-like manner.

“The unprecedented winter weather we’ve seen this year has made people wonder what to do next and how their yard will recover from the snow and freezing temperatures,” said Watkins. “This seminar will discuss these issues and explain which plants work best in the Concho Valley.”

Earth-like plants limit the amounts of fertilizers, pesticides, and water needed for success. All plants labeled AgriLife Extension Earth-Kind are intended to help conserve and protect natural resources and the environment.

Topics covered include:

  • Winter injury recovery with questions and answers.
  • Lawn Maintenance in West Texas.
  • Tree planting and pruning.
  • Edibles for an earth-like landscape: fruits, vegetables and herbs.
