A pair of programs are being offered by the Marshall Township Department of Parks and Recreation for gardeners who want to add to the menu of things they grow or swap what they planted with others.

Perennial Exchange

A Perennial Exchange is scheduled from 7 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, May 15 at the Elias Fry Barn in Knob Hill Park.

Participants can bring sections of their favorite ground cover to the event and exchange them with neighbors who have grown different varieties.

Please place a label indicating the type of perennial and whether its best suited for sun or shade.

Fresh Herbs Grown by You

Vicki Wiegand of Shenot Farms will lead a workshop on growing an herb garden in containers from 7 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 28.

Participants will receive a planter, soil, young herb plants and instruction on how to care for them.

Wiegand also will share tips on cooking with herbs and storing them for winter use.

The cost is $25 per person or $30 for non-residents. The deadline to sign up is May 20.

The program will be held in Marshall Warren Room at the municipal building, 526 Pleasant Hill Road.

Sign up online participate in either program. The registration forms are listed under the “Adult Programs” tab.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
