If you enjoy gardening

If you enjoy gardening and have a love for learning here's a wonderful opportunity to work with  Dr. Kate Frego who we all know makes everything educational FUN! Here's Kate's message to Fundy Gardeners:

I am planning to offer a non-credit “basic botany” course through the College of Extended Learning this summer?  The tentative dates are:  Sundays, 1-3 PM, from May 28-July 9.  Location and registration fee TBA.  My plan is to structure it as a mixture of “lecture”, outdoor walks, and examining plant material closely (sometimes with a microscope).  If this works out, I would be looking at more specialized botany topics in the future.

I’m pretty excited about this!  I hope there are folks who want to participate….

Sincerely,
Kate

Dr. Katherine A. Frego
Professor (Biological Sciences) (retired) and 3M National Teaching Scholar
Honorary Research Professor
Director of Graduate Studies, Biology Graduate Academic Unit
