Sustainability committee to host indoor gardening workshops

Harris Robert
Bob Harris

The Pitt-Bradford Sustainability Committee will sponsor a series of free workshops on indoor gardening with master gardener Bob Harris during January and February. 

            All three workshops will be held beginning at 10 a.m. in the Harriett B. Wick Chapel on campus. 

            The series begins January 25 with terrariums. Participants can bring their own clear glass or plastic containers and purchase plants for the terrarium for $3 each at the workshop, which will also include learning the old art of terrarium sand painting. 

             The second event will be Indoor Gardening for Your Health on Feb. 8. Learn how to use indoor plants to improve your indoor environment, health and well-being. 

             On Feb. 22, Harris will teach another make-and-take workshop on Zen sand gardens. Participants can bring any favorite colored sand or rocks they may have. 

             Harris is a certified master gardener through Penn State Cooperative Extension, the primary gardener at Pitt-Bradford as a member of the maintenance crew and the host of “Around the Home,” a weekly call-in gardening show on WESB radio.
