Adult Education

Right-Sized Flower Gardens

September 30 from 1:00-3:00 p.m.

Change happens. Many still dream of ‘Better Homes and Gardens’ landscapes but reality has muddied the picture. Job demands, kids, money, hectic schedules, aging bodies, and changing interests have led to nightmare gardens. Time for some ‘editing’. This inspiring lecture provides easy-to-follow downsizing strategies, recommended no-fuss plant material, and design tips for stunning year-round gardens that will be as close to autopilot as you can get. The lecture also includes organic and sustainable practices. Taught by author, Kerry Ann Mendez who's newest book, The Right-Size Flower Garden, will be released in February 2015. For more information, please see the Advanced Master Gardener Course Schedule under Adult Education & Master Gardeners.
