The Roanoke Valley Chapter of FRIENDS will be hosting a free presentation by the Virginia Cooperative Extension and Roanoke Masters Gardeners on Thursday, May 18, 2017 at 5:30 pm, at the Raleigh Court Library.

Barbara Leach of Virginia Cooperative Extension and Ellen Holtman of Roanoke Master Gardeners will share beautiful photos and information about the Blue Ridge environment, including topography, soil, pH, elevation and types of trees.
