As interest in growing foods and gardening in West Virginia continues to rise, the West Virginia University Extension Service is connecting new and seasoned gardeners with helpful tips, educational information and more through the 2022 garden calendar.
The calendar, themed “West Virginia’s Own,” features information on how to propagate a wide variety of our state’s native and heirloom crops, including ramps, tomatoes, winter squash, peaches and more.
The calendar also offers bonus materials and highlights, which include growing advice, food preservation recommendations, pest management information and healthy recipes that use your garden’s harvest, all provided by WVU Extension Service experts.
Readers will find fun facts and information about some of WVU Extension’s additional programs scattered throughout the calendar as well.
To obtain a copy of the calendar, while supplies last, or learn more about gardening and healthy lifestyles, contact the WVU Extension Service office in Clay County at 304-587-4267 or by email at ClayCountyExtension@mail.WVU.edu.
Copies of the 2022calendar are available at the Clay County Extension Office in the New Clay Courthouse.
Beginning in early 2022, the calendar also will be available online and will feature bonus content, including helpful videos, to help growers make the most of their gardening efforts.
