EVENTS

Conversations on Nature

The 2021 series will feature experienced gardeners speaking on the general topic of nurturing your gardens throughout the season and we will start with presentations in May on planning & designing tips for new and mature gardens. We will also talk about how to add zing to your garden with annuals and other plants.  August will continue with how to add ornamental grasses to your garden and how to save and preserve your plants for use in the fall and winter. Our final session in October will be a live, hands-on event making a table decoration using dried florals, natural components, and succulents to liven up your home decor. We’re hoping that will be a fun way for you to end the growing season!

Please join us as we spend time together making our gardens our own!
