The Master Gardeners are hosting a workshop on making hypertufa containers Thursday, September 7, 2017; 6-8 pm. At this workshop we will form a rustic textured garden container utilizing Portland cement and perlite. The workshop will be led by Mahaska County Master Gardeners Verna Conry and John Langstraat.

The workshop will be held at the Southern Iowa Fairgrounds (701 South I Street). All needed materials will be provided. Please wear clothes suited for our task to this workshop.

Cost for the workshop is $5. Workshop is limited to 15. Please register by calling the Extension Office 641-673-5841 by Friday, September 1. Younger participants who register for this workshop are asked to have an adult along help them.

Mahaska County Master Gardeners are celebrating their fourteenth year. The local program organized after the county held their first training. The educational volunteer program, sponsored by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, provides current, research based, home horticulture information and education to the citizens of Iowa through programs and projects. Master Gardeners receive horticulture training, and volunteer to promote a mission of education and service. The program is open to anyone 18 or older with an interest in gardening and a willingness to use their knowledge, experience and enthusiasm to make a positive impact on their local community. A training will be held this fall.

More information about this and other horticulture events can be found at the Mahaska County Extension Office; 212 North I Street; Oskaloosa Phone 641-673-5841; and www.extension.iastate.edu/mahaska/yardgarden.htm.
