Long Islanders are fortunate to have a relatively mild climate that affords many options in planning a home garden. We are very proud of our green lawns, perennial gardens, ornamental trees, pond and container gardens, not to mention our vegetable gardens.
Cornell Cooperative Extension offers research-based support to gardeners with online horticulture leaflets, gardening schools and master gardener classes. Homeowners can bring soil and plant samples to our diagnostic labs for help determining treatment or amendments. And our youngest residents can learn to plant their own gardens at the Children’s Garden at the Suffolk County Farm in Yaphank.
This fundraiser party celebrates the renaissance of the Children’s Garden and will help it grow to meet the educational needs of more children in Suffolk County.
We can't wait for the next exciting season at the Children's Garden held at the Suffolk County Farm & Education Center in Yaphank. Every year brings more and more fun!
The Long Island Gardening Calendar is now available for just $7, a perfect gift for the passionate gardener.
Anyone with a desire to learn more about gardening and an interest in contributing to the community on a voluntary basis is a candidate for the Suffolk County Master Gardener Volunteer Program.
