Due to the community’s overwhelming response to the Aug. 30 “Lawn Care 101” workshop, the Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Department will offer a second session on Thursday, Aug. 31.
The Aug. 30 session is now full, so organizers have scheduled a second workshop the following day to accommodate interested residents. The Aug. 31 workshop will take place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Wake Forest Town Hall Ground Floor Meeting Room at 301 Brooks Street. The meeting room is most easily accessed via town hall’s Taylor Street entrance.
Park Maintenance Superintendent Josh Glover will lead both workshops. Geared to homeowners, the “how-to” sessions will emphasize cool season turf management and fall over-seeding, while also providing useful information about plant beds.
An N.C. State graduate with a degree in turfgrass science, Glover has 10 years turf management experience involving everything from parks and golf courses to professional baseball and football sports turf, including Bank of America Stadium.
There is no cost to participate, but registration for the Aug. 31 workshop is required at www.wakeforestnc.gov/lawn-care-101.aspx. Class size is limited to the first 40 people to register.
