Getting Dirty with Durham County Master Gardeners Radio Show  –

MARCH 3 – Our gardens are starting to wake up and there’s lots to do.  Visit Art in Bloom at the NCMA or the JC Raulston Arboretum where you will find children’s  and citizen scientist programs starting up.  Take steps now to prevent diseases getting a hold of your garden later in the season.  When animals lose their jobs they become extinct —meet some people who are trying to preserve our domestic animals.  We wrap up this month with a cautionary tale of murder. 2:00pm on WCOM 103.5
