— The Friends of the Arboretum will be offering a program for children and two gardening classes for adults this March at the Orange County Arboretum, located within Thomas Bull Memorial Park.

On March 13, Parks Department Arborist Peter Patel will offer “Woody Shrubs for Your Landscape" from 10 a.m. to noon in the Kosuga Classroom. Patel will cover shrub selection, site planning, proper planting and general maintenance, as well as discuss pruning techniques, deer resistance, and winter protection for your shrubs. The class is free but pre-registration is required and space is very limited.

The Friends also will present “Seed Starting” on Saturday, March 22, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. for kids ages seven to 10. Children will make their own seed pots by recycling old news print and make seed strips to plant at home. Instructions on how to care for their plants will also be provided. The class is $2 per student, pre-registration is required and space is limited.

On March 28, the Friends will give a class on “Plant Propagation” from 10 a.m. to noon. Master Gardener Bob Pioselli will discuss the various methods you can use to propagate house plants, as well as outdoor plants including annuals, perennials, and shrubs. The class is free but pre-registration is required and space is very limited.

To reserve a seat for any of the classes, call 845-615-3828.
