Gardening Talks and Workshops

The Gardening Talks and Workshops committee of the Virginia Beach Master Gardeners plans and hosts a series of lectures for the public each year. The one-hour lectures are held at the Meyera E. Oberndorf Central Library, located at 4100 Virginia Beach Blvd, on Monday evenings throughout the year. All talks begin at 7 p.m. Speakers provide a variety of garden-related information and topics have included seed starting, pruning, edible gardens, container gardening, native plants, and many more. The lectures are not sequential, so you can attend all, or just your favorite topics. All talks are free and open to the public. No registration is required.

Workshops are scheduled throughout the year to provide a hands-on experience for residents. Participants work directly with Master Gardeners to complete projects, such as a mason bee house or starting cuttings, or learn first-hand skills and techniques for working in their own gardens. Workshops are free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required, as each workshop is limited to a certain number of participants.

Check our Calendar of Events for a complete listing of this year’s Gardening Talks and Workshops, and for registration information.
