Assignment for June’s Thoughtful Thursday

This is really a difficult assignment for attending a webinar, but I am sure every MGEV planning to participate in June’s Thoughtful Thursday webinar can manage to find the time and enthusiasm!

ASSIGNMENT: Plant a container.

Yep, that’s it. Make of it what you will.

Then, join us on June 13, 2019, at 2 pm, for our Thoughtful Thursday webinar. Mike Maddox, state coordinator for Wisconsin’s Extension Master Gardener Program, will join us online to talk about “An Introduction to Horticultural Therapy.” Mike has recently completed the certification process for horticulture therapy and has offered a significant number of training events for EMGs in Wisconsin that address principles of working with diverse audiences using horticulture programming.

To connect with us on June 13, use this link: (If you click on the link before June 13, you’ll just see nothing!) Be sure to do your homework around that time. Mike will draw on your experience during his webinar.

By the way, planting containers with Mike is serious business. I am challenged to compete against him and two other state coordinators in “Container Wars” during the International Master Gardener Conference in Valley Forge, PA, just five days after our Thoughtful Thursday webinar. May the best gardener win!
