Gardening Classes with Nancy Hook
  On Saturday, June 11, the Library will be offering gardening instruction at a new monthly class from 10 – 12. Our volunteer, Nancy Hook, who has designed and maintained our gardens, with help over the 40+ years from Cazenovia Garden Club members, will be teaching new and old gardeners of any age. Families, women and men; all are welcome to learn how to get the most beautiful landscapes with the least effort and best use of time and funds. A Cornell Cooperative Extension trained Master Gardener, Nancy has owned a 9 acre perennial nursery and show gardens at her former home, Hidden Pond, donated plants and designs for many public spaces in Cazenovia, designed professionally many area landscapes and wrote a gardening column “Floral Notes” for the Cazenovia Republican. Now she is celebrating the 7th spring working on her shade and sun gardens at her home on Burlingame Road. There will be classes every second Saturday of the month at the same time until October, when fall closing of the garden and bulb planting will be the topic. Each month has a new focus, shrub care and selection, annuals and perennials, even a visit to Nancy’s garden to see the variety of plants that grow in our climate. Attendees will meet in the lower Memorial Garden, off the library parking lot. Light rain will be tolerated, but in case of downpours, the class will move indoors, for a slide presentation. Please RSVP by June 6 to Nancy by email at or for any questions. If you have a conflict for the first or any other classes, the summary of each month’s lesson will be emailed. All participants receive the notes by email for their files.
