Master Gardeners start new season, time to sign up

Master Gardeners will hear what's new in the garden world they can enjoy in 2013 or what's new one can put in a container because smaller, deck gardens seem to be the rage.

Carrie Larsen, River Falls and a Proven Winners representative, will brighten the evening at the Thursday, Jan. 24, St Croix Valley Master Gardener (SCVMGA) meeting with her pictures of new plants, beautiful flowers and container ideas. Larsen's pictures have turned a winter evening into wishful thinking before in time for the nursery catalogs.

January is also new SCVMGA member month. Starting with pizza or heavy hors d'oeuvres at 6 p.m., new and old members will learn about the many activities available to members. Posters or presentations and sign-up sheets will be available. This is the chance to sign up for the year's opportunities to garden, learn and take part in the activities.

The meeting will be held at the Unitarian Society Church, N8010 Hwy. 65, southeast of River Falls, starting at 6 p.m., with the presentation at 7:15 p.m.
