Delmonaco Vineyards: Hands on CEU opportunity April 18, 19 and 20th

RSVP directly to Barbara Delmonaco by April 17th at:
barbara@delmonacowinery.com or call 931-267-9687
Not only do Master Gardeners teach Interns, but Interns can teach Master Gardeners! 

This year, we are very fortunate to have Barbara Delmonaco,  co-owner of Delmonaco Winery and Vineyards, as a PCMG Intern.  What started as a weekend hobby for Barbara and her husband David has evolved into a premier Tennessee winery and vineyard.
Every spring grape vines need to be replaced and planted sooooooo ......Bring your gloves and hand trowels and  join Barbara and David at Delmonaco Vineyards on April 18, 19th and possibly 20th starting at 8am for a lesson on the different grape varieties, care of grapes in our TN climate and proper planting and trellising of the vines. What better way to learn than to actually get your hands in the soil and plant some grape vines!  David has pre-drilled the holes which are about 1 foot wide x 1 foot deep.  Prepare to be on your knees as you plant the vines so wear knee pads or bring a knee pad and come prepared to learn and get dirty. Barbara has graciously offered to provide lunch for those who can plant until noon.
This is a continued educational opportunity of 2 CEU credits. This is not a PCMG project so hours spent planting grapes will not count as PCMG volunteer hours.

See you in the vineyards,
