UPCOMING EVENT

Field trip to the Geneva Experiment Station
Saturday, July 11, 2009

Time: 10 am.
OR if carpooling; 9:30 am at the County Court House parking lot.
Meet in the parking lot at the water tower near Jordan Hall off of W. North St. in Geneva. From Canandaigua, take Routes 5 & 20 east, turn left onto Preemption Rd. and turn right onto W. North St. Look for the water tower.

The Experiment Station is closed on the weekends. However, we can tour their native herbaceous flower gardens and have lunch in the gazebo on the Station grounds. Dr. Jana Lamboy, Assistant Professor of Environmental Conservation and Horticulture at FLCC has offered to give us a tour of the gardens which should be in full flower. After lunch, we will go to see Dr. Lamboy's gardens - natural, permaculture gardens. The emphasis is on cut flowers, privacy, natives, shrubs and trees without the use of pesticides or fertilizers.
