From Cornell Cooperative Extension, Master Gardeners, 9/18/21
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Allegany County’s Agriculture Program welcomes you to visit our Master Gardeners at the Belmont Farmers Market. The What’s Your Weed? Identification Day program will be held Thursday, September 23rd, between 11:00 AM-3:00 PM. The market is held at 5429 State Route 19N in Belmont, NY. This service is offered free of charge to Allegany County residents.
We ask that you bring a limit of 2 weed samples per person. Try to get some of the roots with the plant and remove most of the soil. To prevent drying out, wrap in a damp paper towel and place in a sealed plastic bag filled with some air to keep the sample fresh.

The association is part of the national cooperative extension system, an educational partnership between County, State, and Federal governments.
