The Franklin Gardeners Association is working with the garden clubs in Oil City and Titusville and the Master Gardeners to present the Gardening 2012 to be held at the Venango County Fairgrounds on Saturday, March 10.
Doug Oster, the gardening editor for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, will be among the featured regularly on radio and television programs. He is particularly well-known for his program on public gardens in Pennsylvania, produced for WQED-TV.
A variety of topics will be covered in several sessions including mushrooms, rain barrels and composting. The cost for the day-long symposium is $35 and includes lunch and morning coffee time.
Several vendors will have displays and offer items for sale. Door prizes and a Chinese auction will also be featured. Reservations may be made by calling Vicki Babb at the Venango County Cooperative Extention office, (814)437-7607.
