OSU offering free gardening classes in Redmond


Do you want to learn more about how to garden successfully in the high desert? The Central Oregon chapter of Oregon State University Master Gardeners is hosting free classes just for that. 

Learn how to grow vegetables and properly maintain your garden in our specific climate.

“It’s a wonderfully vibrant event,” says Master Gardener Vickie Minor “We do that because a lot of people are new and they don’t know how to garden here and they don’t even know where to start. And then there are other people who have been here for a while, and they don’t think you can garden here.”
