Monday, May 23rd & Tuesday May 24th – Tomato Planting – GMREC

Please let your master gardeners know that we would love their help May 23 & 24th, from 10 AM until they feel like they have done enough. We will be planting transplant tomatoes at the station like last year and to sweeten the deal, free lunch provided. I may even let some apples slip away this fall for our wonderful volunteers. Thank you.

“Moss Magic in Your Landscape”

Moss Gardening Expert and Author at Georgia Mountain Research and Education Center Blairsville, GA

Friday, June 3, 2022 at 9 am

Blairsville, GA: Annie Martin, nationally-recognized moss landscape designer and author of The Magical World of Moss Gardening (Timber Press, 2015), introduces the joys and environmental benefits of gardening with eco-friendly mosses at Georgia Mountain Research and Education Center in Blairsville, GA on Friday, June 3 at 9 am. 

Have you ever wished you could enjoy spectacular green instead of drab, brown, dormant gardens during winter months? Do you have a shady location where nothing else will grow?  Are you tired of mowing grass? Native mosses are an excellent horticultural alternative. Let Mossin’ Annie be your guide into a magical and miniature world of earth’s oldest living land plants – mosses. With the passion of an environmentally-responsible mosser and practical experience as a moss farmer, this licensed landscape contractor offers expert advice on how to achieve magnificent year-round green moss appeal.

Annie Martin, author of The Magical World of Moss Gardening (Timber Press 2015), will present an informative and entertaining program and guided nature stroll at Georgia Mountain Research and Education Center in Blairsville, GA on Friday, June 3 at 9 am.  As a nationally-recognized moss gardening expert, Mossin’ Annie will provide valuable insights on how to transform your outdoor living space into a serene retreat and eco-friendly landscape with verdant mosses. Inspirational photographs, moss specimens for ID and essential how-to tips will help you get started on your own moss gardening projects. Autographed books will be available after the program. For more about Martin’s mossy endeavors, visit www.mountainmoss.com. This program is sponsored by GMREC’s Outreach Committee. It is offered free to the public and no registration is required.  As always, we are limited to the first 100 people.
