Henderson County Extension Office: Master Gardener Program I have used Extension Offices all over the country, wherever I lived, for many decades. They have assisted me in my diseased plants, showed me how to properly amend the soil, and they have taught me how to prevent poisoning myself and others in canning, just to name a few things.  I have been hearing about the Master Gardening program for years and have always wanted to go through the program. They take a certain number of people each year, educate them through weekly classes, and then these graduates volunteer in various capacities over the year. It is a great program, and the learning is intense and massive.  This year I finally took the plunge! I am in the 5th week of the program I think, and the book we are using is packed w...

ATTENTION: Hendersonville citizens.  Earlier this week, the fire department issued a scam warning.  Recently, the department was made aware that someone has been calling Hendersonville residents claiming they are with the Hendersonville Fire Department and soliciting money on their behalf.  The fire department wants area residents to know that they do not actively solicit money.  They receive their funding from the City of Hendersonville's general fund. If you do receive a phone call from someone claiming to be with the Hendersonville Fire Department and asking you for money, do not give them any of your financial information.  Instead, get their name and contact information.  Then, call the Hendersonville Fire Department at (828) 697-3024.  Don't ever give your personal financial infor...

Chilly weather doesn't mean you always have to stay indoors.  How about a ride down Moonshine Mountain?  No...there's no actual "moonshine" involved, just pure, snow tubing joy.  You won't find skiers, snowboarders or even sledders there since only snow tubing is allowed on this Hendersonville mountain! Moonshine Mountain in Hendersonville offers 500 feet of steep, tubing bliss.  While they currently have a five foot base, they do make their own snow when needed.  The tubers lift will take you to the top of the mountain.  There is a 250 lb weight limit for the lift, though.  If you exceed this limit, one of the helpful Moonshine Mountain employees will be happy to pull your tube up the hill for you while you walk with them.  It's also the only place in the entire southeast that allows t...

Recycling has become a habit for many Hendersonville residents.  By recycling, we reduce the amount of waste that fills up the landfills as well as the amount of natural resources we use up in creating certain items, which reduces the strain on our environment.  The City has had a recycling program in place for its residents for a while now.  With its growing popularity, Hendersonville has now increased what it considers acceptable recyclables for curbside disposal. In addition to the normal items that are picked up in the blue bins (paper products, egg cartons, glass bottles and jars, empty aerosol cans, etc), the City of Hendersonville is now accepting all plastic products that fall within the #1-7 range of recyclable materials.  What are these? Number 1 - PET or PETE.  Items containi...

I certainly hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with their loved ones.  I certainly did!  It's sad to see the decorations coming down.  You spent so much time decorating your tree that you are probably going to want to keep it up at least until after the new year.  But, what do you do with it after that?  The City of Hendersonville has the answer to your Christmas tree disposal question.  Recycle! The first Saturday of the new year (January 5, 2013), the City will be accepting Christmas trees from Hendersonville and Henderson County residents for recycling.  Just bring your tree to Jackson Park's Ballfield #6 (801 Glover Street) between 8:30am and 2pm.  They will turn all recycled trees into mulch, which works great for your spring garden.  If you bring a bucket, you can take some m...
