October at Applewood: Dinner Party Disasters and Turf-n-Tractors

Event Details

Join us for October at Applewood every Saturday to learn about how and why we care for the grounds, house, and collections at Applewood. Learn new skills you can use at home or in your community as we explore how caring for our yards and gardens or preserving our history are important forms of civic participation. Drop in anytime from noon to 3 p.m.

Turf n’ Tractors: Early October is a key time of year to care for your lawn. Come see how we care for the turf at Applewood and get a close-up look at some of our special equipment and tractors. Get tips on caring for your own equipment, and learn about community resources for borrowing tools and equipment in Flint.

Dinner Party Disasters: As many folks prepare to host seasonal gatherings, we’ll look at how to prevent and repair damage from dinner party accidents, such as spills on tablecloths and wear on wooden tables.

Please note: All October at Applewood sessions are outdoors. Some programs may be canceled or adjusted in case of poor weather.
