Cement leaves. The Geauga County Master Gardener volunteers are holding two classes for participants to make decorative cement leaves. The classes will be held from 9 a.m. to noon, June 11, and 7 to 9 p.m., June 15. An off-site address will be provided upon registration. The cost is $50 to preregister. In the first class, participants will select a leaf  and learn how to mold and cast the leaf in cement. The second class, participants will release the leaf from its mold and prep it for decorative finish.

All materials, except for decorative finishes, are provided.  Register with Wendy at 440-834-4656. Mail checks payable to OSU Extension Geauga County, Patterson Building, P.O. Box 387, Burton, OH 44021.
