Recently, Landmark residents and youngsters attending the Blue Ridge Library in Stuart’s Storytime learned all about cotton, including how it grows and how it’s made into clothing. They each found fuzzy cotton seeds from a locally grown cotton boll, and hand spun some cotton string from a cotton ball.
The children at Storytime also decorated a flowerpot and then planted seeds to grow their own cotton plant.
The programs were led by Master Gardeners Jessica Hines, Norma Bozenmayer and children’s librarian Samantha Edmundson.
Registration is now open for the 2024 Virginia Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Training Class. For more information about the training or Master Gardener programs, email email@example.com.
