Master Gardener Volunteer cutting Mexican sunflowers

Join us at Tidewater Farm on the second Saturday of the month from June to October, rain or shine, for our family-friendly field days!

Saturday, August 12, 10:00 AM to Noon: Deadheading | Extending the Season

With the wide variety of flowers blooming in August, enjoy a walk through the gardens and participate in a hands-on demonstration of deadheading annuals and perennials throughout the growing season. Then, learn how to extend the gardening season by planting vegetable crops well into the late summer/early fall and various setups for protecting your crops against frost.

Our friends at the Falmouth Land Trust will be on hand to share information about local trails and nature-based programming. Learn how the Land Trust protects natural resources through conservation easements and participate in a child-friendly activity.
