Landscape Horticulture Workshop planned April 23-24

LINCOLN, Neb. – A University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension Landscaping and Horticulture Workshop April 23-24 will be offered at the Nebraska State 4-H Camp near Halsey.

The hands-on workshop is open to students and adults and will teach general landscaping and horticulture skills, said Connie Cox, Nebraska 4-H camp coordinator.

Participants will be able to bring in their own soil and water samples so they can learn what plants will grow well and what won’t grow well in their areas.

University and private industry experts will discuss soil preparation techniques for successful landscaping plants, new approaches to vegetable gardening, different ideas and plans that will enhance the landscape and practical pruning. In addition to soil and water samples, participants should also bring hand pruners and a layout of the area to be landscaped. Question and answer sessions also will be available during the workshop.

Check-in and registration will begin at 4:30 April 23. A 5:30 cookout will be followed by a trip to the camp’s Zipline and an evening activity.

Late registration and breakfast will start at 8 a.m. April 24 with speakers beginning at 9 a.m. The workshop will conclude by 5:30 p.m.

Registration is due by April 19. Cost is $70 for adults and $40 for students. For more information or to register, contact the Nebraska 4-H Camp, P.O. Box 87, Halsey, NE 69142, call (308) 533-2224 or e-mail Lodging also is available at the camp.
