SWEETWATER – The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will conduct a Lunch and Learn Horticulture Series in Sweetwater in April and May, said Zach Wilcox, the agency’s agent in Nolan County.

“This is shaping up to be a beautiful spring, just right for yard and landscape work,” Wilcox said. “To help get gardeners off to a good start, we have scheduled three programs that will deal with topics we field questions on the most. All the programs will be from noon to 1 p.m. in the meeting room located on the third floor of the Nolan County Courthouse, 100 E. 3rd St. in Sweetwater. So bring a sack lunch and come join us.”
