Monarchs and the Plants They Love - February 25, 7:30 p.m.
Monarch butterflies and their decreasing numbers have been in the news a great deal over the last several years.

Water Quality - March 3, 7:30 p.m.
Eroding shorelines, washouts, algae covered and polluted lakes are real issues that we can do something about. Host Mary Holm visits with landscape designer, Steve Deal to see how using rain gardens, buffer strips, shoreline restoration and native plants can all increase water quality.
Geraniums - March 10, 7:30 p.m.
Some people regard geraniums as old fashioned flowers because they have been around for generations of gardeners. Host Mary Holm visits with Master Gardener, Donna Christen who says “not so fast.” Yes, geraniums have been around a long time, but there are so many new and unusual varieties that they are still a wonderful addition to today’s gardens and containers.
Glenwood Community Garden - March 24, 7:30 p.m.
Mike Knutson of Glenwood, Minnesota wanted to do something to help the hungry in his community and decided that gardening was the perfect way to help.
