FALMOUTH — University of Maine Cooperative Extension plans to host a field day from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Aug. 12 at the UMaine Gardens at Tidewater Farm, 200 Presumpscot Point Road.

People can experience the gardens at Tidewater Farm, learn about UMaine Extension’s work, ask gardening questions and participate in hands-on demonstrations with Extension staff and master gardener volunteers.

Demonstrations begin at 10:30 a.m. Child-friendly activities will be provided. No registration is required.

With the wide variety of flowers blooming in August, visitors can walk through the gardens and participate in a hands-on demonstration of deadheading annuals and perennials. Additional topics include how to extend the gardening season by planting vegetable crops well into the late summer and early fall and various setups for protecting crops against frost, according to a news release from Pamela Hargest at the Falmouth office.

Representatives from the Falmouth Land Trust will share information about local trails and nature-based programming. People can learn how the land trust protects natural resources through conservation easements.
