If you are looking for some different vegetables to plant this year, you’ll want to attend the January Lunch ‘n’ Learn.


This month Allison Watkins, AgriLife Extension Horticulturist, will be talking about “Old Fashioned Plants: Heirloom Vegetables and Antique Roses”.

Sometimes you can’t improve on Mother Nature. Learn about growing these tried and true favorites! The class is this Friday, January 8 from 12 noon to 1 p.m. Bring your questions about your landscape challenges, too.

The class will be held at the Edd B. Keys building, 113 W. Beauregard. It will be in the offices of the AgriLife Extension service on the first floor. Turn to the right down the new hallway inside the back door. Cost is only $5 per class. Bring your lunch.

The proceeds from the classes will go to The People/Plant Connection build the Children’s Adventure Garden in Padron Park. If you would like more information about The People/Plant Connection, call 325-656-3104 or check out their website at: www.peopleplantconnection.org.
