THE MASTER GARDENERS OF BERGEN COUNTY Presentation: "The Garden Under the Microscope"
At the next meeting of the Bergen County Master Gardeners, the program will be "The Garden Under the Microscope", presented by Wiebke Hinsch and Jan Hinsch.
Jan and Wiebke Hinsch look at their garden from different perspectives. Wiebke, a Master Gardener, Class of 2001, has a passion for plants ~ clearly, reflected in her garden. Jan, as former Director of the Laboratory for Applied Microscopy at Leica Microsystems and member of the New York Microscopical Society views the garden with a very different eye.
Their presentation is a synthesis of their respective passions. Wiebke and Jan will share photographs taken through the microscope of “things” from their garden that are invisible to the naked eye. And later in the year, view it for yourself as the garden will be featured as part of the Garden Conservancy's annual Open Days Program.
The presentation will be held on: Tuesday January 22, 2013 at 7:30pm, at The County Administration Building, One Bergen Plaza, County Place, Hackensack, NJ. in the Learning Center on the 4th floor. Home of the County Extension Office. With easy parking & building access, meetings are open to all interested gardeners, free of charge, and refreshments, followed by announcements, start at 7pm.
