ORONO — University of Maine Cooperative Extension and University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension plan to offer a webinar for home gardeners about how to extend the growing season.

The session is scheduled for 6 to 7:15 p.m. Monday, Feb. 7.

“Extending the Gardening Season in New England” includes season-extension strategies ranging from targeted use of mulches and row covers to the use of small high tunnels, with in-depth guidance for how to build and implement these tools in home gardens.

The workshop will be led by Frank Wertheim, UMaine Extension educator, and Becky Sideman, UNH Extension sustainable horticulture specialist.

Registration is required; a sliding scale program fee is optional. To register to attend live or receive a link to the recording, visit extension.umaine.edu.

This is the fifth in a six-part winter gardening webinar series offered monthly through March for Maine and New Hampshire gardeners.
