Fannin P.I.E.


BONHAM — Gardening will be the topic of the Fannin Partners in Education (PIE) workshop set for March 26 at 2 p.m. The workshop will be held at the TEAM Center, 806 West 16th Street in Bonham and is free and open to the public. Complimentary pie will be served.


Bringing "Gardening the Square Foot Way" will be Fannin County Master Gardeners Alice Mussett, Katherine McConnell and Carol Fauble. They will discuss how to have a garden in 20 percent of the space, requiring less time, less money and less work than a conventional row garden.


The Fannin PIE is a cooperative effort between Home Hospice of Grayson, Cooke and Fannin Counties, the Area Agency on Aging, Clyde W. Cosper (Texas State Veterans Homes), Texas AgriLife Extension and the Texoma Housing Partners. Programs are held the last Wednesday of each month.
