The Whatcom County Master Gardeners are offering a class on Saturday, June 23rd. at 10 am at the historic Roeder House for those who have an older urban garden that needs pruning, thinning, and perhaps some new plants!

Participants will learn how the Roeder House garden was brought back to its original glory. “Before pictures” will tell a lot of the story. Following the class, there will be guided tours of the home and the gardens.

FREE class along with a pruning handout.


The Master Gardeners Foundation of Whatcom County supports the Master Gardeners program with fundraising and provides information about home horticulture to the public through demonstration gardens, lectures and home gardening advice.
