FALMOUTH — University of Maine Cooperative Extension will host Maine Garden Day on March 14, 8:15 a.m.–4 p.m., at Lewiston High School, 156 East Ave., Lewiston. 

Back after a five-year hiatus, this day-long conference includes 30 hands-on, informational workshops in both half- and quarter-day sessions. Topics range from grafting fruit trees to growing hemp in the garden, rewilding the landscape to hunger in community, and growing a gardening business to raising mushrooms. Keynote speaker Dan Jaffe, author and horticulturist, will discuss the role of native plants in Maine gardens.

The $60 per-person fee/$30 for students includes lunch; limited financial assistance is available, some by application.
