     — Have you ever wondered how to grow large, juicy garlic in your own garden?
    The interest in garlic and garlic consumption has grown over the past several decades largely spurred by gourmet food interest and healthy diet trends.
    Garlic requires relative little space compared to many other vegetable crops and has few pest problems and stores well.
    To learn more join the Penn State Master Gardeners in Wayne County, on Tuesday, Sept. 24, as they host Brian Fox of Salem Mountain Farm.
    Come learn everything you need to know about preparing the ground, growing, harvesting and storing garlic. Now's the time to start!
    The workshop will be held at the Penn State Extension office in Wayne County, at the Park Street Complex, 648 Park St., Honesdale. The workshop will be held from 6 – 8 p.m.
    There will be a $5 charge per person to attend. Children under 18 are free. Pre-registration is appreciated but not required, by calling the Penn State Extension office, Wayne County, 570-253-5970 ext.: 4110 or emailing WayneExt@psu.edu
