Katy Area Gardeners Invited To Summer Night Parties

July 15 2023

Have fun, help a good cause and learn about gardening.

All three are promised during the two-part Summer Night Seminar Series in July and August presented by Enchanted Gardens, the Mustard Seed Farm and Fort Bend AgriLife. Proceeds will benefit the farm, a nonprofit that offers employment and job-skill training for adults who have disabilities.

The End of Summer Block Party will be 6-8 p.m. Thursday, July 27, at Enchanted Gardens, located at 6420 FM 359 in Richmond. Jay White of Texas Gardener Magazine and Destin Noak @TexasGardenGuy will present "A Year in the Yard - A Gardening Guide for Houston." The duo will give helpful tips for every season to keep your landscape beautiful and your homeowners association happy.

The evening also will include an activity station for kids, a water gun fun battle station, face painting, a vintage airstream cocktail bar for adults, and a street taco food truck. Admission includes kids activities but food and drinks will be available for purchase.

The second series program will be "Foraging & Mixology in the Garden" from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 3. at Enchanted Gardens. Dr. Mark "Merriwether" Vorderbruggen, Texas-based forager, PhD chemist, author, inventor, rogue botanist, hunter, and generally wild guy, will speak about "The Basics of Foraging and Medicinal Landscaping."

After the seminar, Andy Chidester, a favorite gardening guru, will moonlight as a botanical bartender and show some recipes - and pass out samples - for sangria and mojitos using ingredients from your garden. A food truck serving street tacos will be on site for the event. Food and drinks again will be available for purchase separately from the admission price.

Founded in 1989, Fort Bend County Master Gardeners, Inc. consists of 200 Certified Texas Master Gardeners and Associates who work extremely hard to further the mission of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension. A unique education agency with a statewide network of professional educators, trained volunteers, and county offices, the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension aims to improve lives across Texas by delivering innovative science-based solutions and education at the intersection of health, agriculture and environment in communities across the state.

Master Gardeners are members of the local community who take an active interest in their lawns, trees, shrubs, flowers and gardens. They are willing to learn and to help others, and able to communicate with diverse groups of people. What sets Master Gardeners apart from other home gardeners is their special training in horticulture. In exchange for their training, persons who become Master Gardeners contribute time as volunteers, working through their cooperative Extension office to provide horticultural-related information to their communities.

Series sponsors are Enchanted Gardens, MicroLife Fertilizer, Medina and the Fort Bend County Master Gardeners.
