Join our weekly discussions as we seek to understand today's polarized American society by providing context through an examination of the 1960s, when many of the issues and movements were reminiscent of today's.  The protest marches, demonstrations, and riots of the 1960s, set in motion the social reforms of the Great Society programs, expanded civil rights and opportunities for minorities, women, gays, war on poverty, expanded medical coverage through Medicare and Medicaid, and environmental laws, among other reforms.  But this was played out against a backdrop of the Cold War, Vietnam War, anti-war protests, and increasing decline in the faith in the government's ability to meet the needs and expectations of the American people.  It also fueled fears and a backlash that led to the successful "law and order" presidential campaign of Richard Nixon. Join what promises to be a free-wheeling discussion of the issues of the 1960s and their relevance for today.

This six-week course focuses on gardening best practices that begin in the fall and last into the early spring-be it vegetables, flowers, shrubs or trees. How do we offer our garden the seasonal care it deserves? Keeping the mercurial nature of Kansas weather in mind, we will discuss the important garden tasks that keep our plants looking their best all year long. Starting with autumn, we will learn when and how to divide perennials, where and what variety of bulbs to plant, how to put a vegetable garden to bed properly for the winter, and the proper way to "clean up" flower beds. We will also talk about the advantages of fall vegetable gardening including hoop houses and cold frames. Winter is a great time for planning, building garden projects and, most of all, perusing the garden catalogues. We will learn how to prune shrubs and trees while they are dormant. Last but not least, we will discuss when and how to start seed indoors.
