Spring gardening focus of March 12 60+

Andy Rizza, owner of Stone Creek Nursery, Hesston, will bring plant samples and growing tips to the March 14 session of the 60+ Learning in Retirement Program.

His presentation is titled “Spring Has Sprung.”

The session will begin at 10 a.m. in the Wohlgemuth Music Education Center located on the Tabor College campus.

Those planning to attend are encouraged to bring horticulture-related questions.

Raised in Halstead, Rizza gained an appreciation for gardening as he watched his father care for a large garden and vineyard.

After studying fruit science and graduating from Kansas Street University, he worked at Johnson’s Garden Center, Wichita, and Graber’s Nursery, Newton.

He began growing Stone Creek Nursery on the south side of Hesston in 2001. Rizza is the past president of the Kansas Nursery and Landscape Association.

Older adults are invited to attend. Enrollment is $15 per person a semester, $28 per couple or $4 a session.

In an effort to encourage participation, first-time visitors will be admitted free of charge.

Registration and discount lunch cards will be available at the door.
