For Immediate Release
The 17th Annual Guilford County Gardening Gala and Seminar, sponsored by NC Extension and NC Extension
Master Gardener Volunteers, will take place Thursday, September 20, 2018, from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. The event will
return to its usual venue at Guilford County Cooperative Extension, 3309 Burlington Rd. in Greensboro. A full day of
“Fall for Gardening”speakers will feature laughs as well as professional gardening knowledge with 4 outstanding
speakers. “The Grumpy Gardener” (aka Steve Bender) of Southern Living Magazine fame will offer gardening tips
humorously in “The World According to Grumpy.” Brie Arthur -- author, foodscape trailblazer, and correspondent for
the PBS television show “Growing a Greener World” -- will inspire thinking outside the box with “The Foodscape
Revolution,” combining edibles with ornamental gardening. Horticulturist Charlotte Glen, the NC State Coordinator for
the Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Program, will offer solutions for “Reducing Deer Damage in Landscapes.”
Breakout sessions will be offered by Bender (“Grumpy’s Q & A”), Arthur (“Garden Downsizing”), and Mike Romano
(“Uninvited Garden Occupants: Friends or Foes”). Romano is the Environmental Education and Lakes Supervisor for
Greensboro Parks and Recreation, who has a collection of live animals to show for his spirited presentation.

Description: Casualty Loss and Income Tax Deductions Related to Timber and Landscape Trees
Timber or landscape trees destroyed by recent fires, hurricanes or other storms are “casualty losses” that may allow the property owners to take a deduction on their federal income tax returns. To help timber owners, as well as home owners, who suffered timber or landscape tree damages with their tax reporting, this webinar will focus on the new tax law changes that Congress passed in 2017 that affect the casualty loss deductions starting in the 2018 tax year.
