Leafcasting Brings Variety to Yards and Gardens

An extension workshop next week will bring kids and adults together for a fun activity. Extension specialist Karen Ackley tells KNIA/KRLS News that next Wednesday, they’ll be hosting a leafcasting workshop. She explains that during leaf-casting, you make an imprint of a large leaf using sand and a concrete-plaster mix. Ackley says it’s become quite popular with many gardeners, who use finished product for bird baths or yard art. She adds after forming the casting, participants will come back the following week to finish decorating the piece. Registration costs $12, and the deadline for registration is this Friday. For more information, call the extension office at 842-2014.
