Are you tired of plowing, purchasing plants, and planting them every year? Why not take advantage of nature’s desire to keep on growing and giving by growing food plants that will produce for multiple years. In this session, we will explore advantages and disadvantages of perennial food gardening as well as discuss some plants that produce for multiple years.

In 2022 the Lake County Master Gardener Volunteers are returning to in-person classes and will be meeting at the Mentor Public Library, Main Branch.

Each session will consist of a short presentation, which may be followed by interactive demonstrations. Q&A is actively encouraged. When appropriate to the topic, small groups of participants will work with a Lake County Master Gardener Volunteer on a project.

While COVID19 is still active, we are requesting that participants wear masks and maintain appropriate social distance.

Although the sessions are FREE, space is limited and registration IS required. Go to for registration instructions and information.

The library will take registrations online, in person and by phone 2 weeks prior to each talk.
