Summer Daze in the Garden

Saturday, July 28, 9 am- 12:30 pm

Check-in at 8:30 am.  $25 registration fee includes program, parking, and continental breakfast.


Mid-summer presents its own joys and frustrations for the home gardener.  Two lively workshops tackle both.  First, “Who’s in my Garden?” explores the insects, critters, weeds, and diseases we sometimes see in our July landscapes.  Next up… “Hot ‘n Dry…Oh My!”  We will discuss smart water usage and conservation, specific plants that thrive in summer, microclimates, and seed collection from live plants, as well as seed storage.

An added bonus, you will be welcome to explore our two demonstration gardens- one for native plants and one for fruit and vegetables.

*Refunds will not be issued unless program is canceled.
