Learn With Us, January 2021

Learn With Us has a new format! Some in-person programming will be happening in 2021, but space is limited to allow for distancing. Instead of publicizing events happening in the following week, we will advertise events further in advance to allow more time for registration. Since most lectures and presentations are still virtual, we will be posting links to programming in Durham and beyond, highlighting a few talks while providing our readers with the opportunity to view full schedules of events if desired.

Virtual Programming from Durham County

Durham Garden Forum: January 19, 7:00 – 8:30 PM.
Our program this month is on “Tomato Grafting” presented by Dr. Ashley Troth, Extension Agent, Agriculture, NC Cooperative Extension Durham County Center and Kathryn Hamilton, Extension Master Gardener Volunteer. Learn how to get the best of both worlds – great tomato taste and vigorous, disease resistant tomato plants in your garden by grafting two tomatoes together. You will receive all the information needed to do this on your own in the spring. This Zoom presentation is being made available free of charge.
