Blueberries are one of the easiest fruits to grow in central NC

Harvesting home-grown fruits and berries is one of the greatest rewards your garden can offer, but also one of the most challenging. Attend this free Extension Gardener class to learn how.

Topics to be covered include which types of fruits and berries can realistically be grown in Chatham and surrounding counties, recommended varieties and their pollination needs, site selection, soil preparation, planting and maintenance practices, and sustainable pest management practices that will maximize your chances of success.

Two identical sessions have been scheduled. Choose the session that best fits your schedule:

  • Tuesday, Feb. 14, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Feb. 15, 10:00 a.m. – noon

Both sessions will be held at the Chatham Agriculture and Conference Center, located at 1192 US-64 W Business, Pittsboro. Find us on Google Maps.
