Garden writer Charlie Nardozzi to share tips at Ilsley, Porter
MIDDLEBURY — Pretty much anyone in Vermont who is interested in getting their hands into the soil and raise a patch of vegetables or flowers in their yard has heard of master gardener Charlie Nardozzi. The plant specialist, who is a regular on Vermont Public Radio and WCAX-TV and in dispatches from the UVM Extension service will be in Middlebury next week.
Nardozzi will be in Middlebury twice this month.
First he will be at the Ilsley Library in Middlebury next Wednesday, June 10, at 10:30 a.m. to offer tips on growing vegetables in a free presentation sponsored by the Addison County Retired Teachers Association.
Many people are growing some of their own veggies these days. Nardozzi will talk about how people can make their gardens more efficient and productive by growing the best varieties, using space-saving techniques and being smart about reducing weed and pest problems. He will also answer gardening questions.
If you miss Charlie next week — or if you loved him so much that you wanted more — he’ll be back in town on Thursday, June 18, noon-1 p.m. at Porter Hospital, where he will provide some gardening tips during the first Porter Medical Center Farmers Market of the season.
Nardozzi is a nationally recognized garden writer, speaker, radio and television personality. He has worked for more than 20 years bringing expert gardening information to home gardeners through radio, television, talks, online, and the printed page. He delights in making gardening information simple, easy, fun and accessible to everyone.
His energy, exuberance, and love of the natural world also make him an exciting public speaker and presenter. He has spoken at national venues such as the Northwest Flower Show, Philadelphia Flower Show, San Francisco Flower & Garden Show, Master Gardener conferences and trade shows.
