Master Gardener and Landmark Park volunteer Tom Boyle will present a program on planting peas and potatoes at Landmark Park on Feb. 28.
DOTHAN, Ala. -- Backyard gardeners in search of spring planting advice can receive tips from Master Gardener Tom Boyle on Feb. 28 at Dothan's Landmark Park.

Part of the park's new series of educational farm programs, the seminars will be held at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. as Boyle shows how to plant peas and potatoes at the park's Wiregrass Farmstead. He will offer tips on the proper way to plant these vegetables and demonstrate some of the methods used on a farm 100 years ago.

These farm programs will be offered on the fourth Saturday of every month, except March, October and December. Other tentative topics for the year include planting peanuts and cotton, syrup cooking, stripping fodder, watermelon harvest and sampling, blacksmithing, soap making, hearth cooking, clothes washing, chair caning and peanut stacking.

Registration is required. The programs are free with paid gate admission, which is $4 for adults and $3 for kids. The Farm Programs are co-sponsored by the Alabama Agricultural Museum.

Landmark Park, home of the Alabama Agricultural Museum, is a 100-acre historical and natural science park on U.S. Highway 431 North in Dothan. Landmark Park can be viewed on the Web at www.LandmarkPark.com.

For more information or to register, contact Laura VanLandingham at (334) 794-3452 or email laurav@LandmarkPark.com.
