HUNTINGTON -- A series of gardening workshops are being offered by West Virginia State University Extension Service at the Barnett Center in Huntington.

The series targets backyard gardeners as well as groups looking to establish community gardens for kids and seniors.

"Community gardens are wonderful for uniting residents to work together toward achieving a common goal," said Melissa Stewart, extension specialist for Agriculture and Natural Resources. "With this series, we want to shed light on the possibilities for community, youth and adaptive gardens in Huntington, as well as reach the at-home gardener looking to improve their skills."

The courses will take place from 10 a.m. to noon on the following dates:

MARCH 28: Plant Selection and Growing Techniques.

APRIL 11: Raised Beds and Container Gardening.

APRIL 25: Insect and Disease Management.
