Published: April 11, 2012 4:00 AM

The Wilderness Center in Wilmot will hold a native-plant sale and gardening seminar Saturday, April 28, 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., and Sunday, April 29, 1-4 p.m.

On Saturday, visitors will find a wide selection of native plants for their garden during the native-plant sale. Plants go on sale at 9 a.m., so come early for the best selection. The gardening seminars start at 10 a.m. and feature interesting speakers.

This year, Laura Deeter, a professor from ATI, will talk on "Perennials and Woody Plants." Fred Hanacek, an OSU Master Gardener, will teach about "Vegetable Gardening Basics." Author of "Local Choices," Karen Geiser, will talk about gardening and eating with the seasons.

TWC staff Joann Ballbach will be teaching visitors how to cook and enjoy the weeds of their garden and Lynda Price will talk about the wildlife in the garden. Check out the enclosed native-plant sale and gardening-seminar flyer for complete details of times and class descriptions.

Classes are $5 per session. People may register early or the day of the seminar. The center will also have a wildflower walk at 2:30 p.m. and a planting day on the preserve for Foxfield Preserve all day.

Plants that do not sell out on Saturday will be available for sale on Sunday, 1-4 p.m. There will also be a wildflower walk on Sunday at 2 p.m. Wildflower walks are free. See www.wildernesscenter.org to download a plant-sale catalog or call toll free at 1-877-359-5235 for more information.

The Wilderness Center is a nonprofit nature center, located one mile west of Wilmot, just north of highway 250.
