layer 3 between cisco and netgear

I have  a cisco core 6509  switch and 9  Netgear  access layer switches.  
The The netgear have 10G access  uplinks to the Netgear all on Vlan 1 at present.
I have 5 vlans that need to be accessible to all  switches. I would like the core to be the default gateway for all vlans.
The Negear does have some layer 3 capabilities.
Vlan  94-99  are the IDs . Is this possible.
The netgear is SS3300 x52

You can create Layer 3 vlans in cisco 6509 switch and make all NetGear switch as Layer2 switches.

Make the uplink port between netgear to 6509 as trunk and pass all vlans over the trunk,

L3 Vlan on 6509 Switch ---Trunk --> L2 Vlans on NetGear --> servers/workstations

Thanks. so what would the trunk port config on the cisco look like. as I would like to do LACP on the  uplinks
NetExpert Network Solutions Pte LtdTechnical SpecialistCommented:
configure Layer2 vlan on the 6509 switch

config t
vlan 10
name <name of the vlan>
end

Configure Layer 3 vlan on the 6509 switch

int vlan 10
ip address 10.10.10.10 255.255.255.0
no sh
end

Configure LACP port channel on 6509 switch

config t
int <interface number>
switchport
switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
switchport mode trunk
channel-group 10 mode active

int <interface number>
switchport
switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
switchport mode trunk
channel-group 10 mode active

Once you done this step, automatically there will will be port-channel configured on the cisco 6509 switch

I am seeing the port channel as down

Interface port-channel 101
switchport
no ip address
end

You need to add the below command under port channel

Switchport mode trunk
