  • Penn State Extension: Garden Hotline Live! October Oddities
    12:00 pm-1:00 pm
    October 9, 2020

    Penn State Extension: Garden Hotline Live! October Oddities – FREE


    Don’t get spooked by the autumn ailments in your garden – Garden Hotline Live is here to help! Don’t miss the Garden Hotline Live! October Oddities webinar for tips on gardening this fall from our expert Master Gardeners.

     

    Do you have a sick plant, a weed you just can’t seem to ID, or a burning need for horticultural advice? Some questions we receive on our Garden Hotline are issues that plague us all, while others are so bizarre that it takes several experts to puzzle them out. Garden Hotline Live! answers a whole host of questions that we receive from all levels of gardeners across the Commonwealth.

     

    How does it work? We collect questions up to 10 days in advance of the webinar and assign them to our expert Master Gardener Coordinators and Master Gardeners to research. Presenters then share their responses, illustrated with photo-filled PowerPoint and poll questions during the webinar so viewers can learn from the questions (and sometimes mistakes) of their fellow Pennsylvania gardeners.

     

    Have a question you’d like to see answered on Garden Hotline Live? Submit it for a future episode!

    October 21, 2020

    Penn State Extension: Fall Garden Observations: Beginning a Botanical Sketchbook – $5


    In this Fall Garden Observations: Beginning a Botanical Sketchbook webinar, students will begin a sketchbook of observations and fill it with graphite, watercolor, and pen art as they explore a different aspect of the natural world. Botanical art draws together art and science in this time-honored genre. Draw leaves, flowers, fungi, and more and sow the seeds for a lifetime love of drawing and documenting botanical specimens. Watch for information or draw along!

     

    The goal for this webinar is to have fun and make it your own! No experience required! Your instructor will be using the following materials: a Stillman and Birn Zeta series sketchbook, graphite pencils, eraser, a Micron pen, and watercolors and brushes.

     

    Artist materials are not required – you can use any blank paper (unlined is best), pencils, erasers, and waterproof pen (if you plan to paint over your line drawing), colored pencils or watercolor paints, and brushes. Please provide your own botanical specimens.
