Gardening Workshop: Williamsburg Holiday Display
Williamsburg Holiday Display
Presented by Lynn Hoffmann
Sunday, October 22, 2 to 4 p.m.
Students will see how natural flowers, pods and greens are used to celebrate the holidays in the Colonial Williamsburg style. Get inspired by the final harvest of your garden and create a stunning crescent swag of apples or citrus for your front door or that unique spot in your house. Attendees will learn how to attach natural materials to a form and be able to reuse the form year after year. Students must choose to use apples or citrus. Lemons, oranges or limes will be used depending on availability. If space allows, we will also accept walk-in registration for $35.
Registration fee is $30. ($25 registration +$5 supply fee).
Deadline to register is Friday, October 13.
The Barn Series of Gardening Lectures & Workshops for the Shenandoah Valley Gardener
Northern Shenandoah Valley Master Gardeners and Belle Grove Plantation have teamed up to host a series of monthly lectures & workshops from April to October 2017. The lecture topics will focus on home gardening and using what can be grown at home. The knowledgeable instructors are members of the Northern Shenandoah Valley Master Gardener Association (NSVMGA). Each monthly session will include a lecture followed by a workshop where students will put to use some new found ideas. Attendees will go home with creations that range from garden art, starter gardens, samples of herb and tomato dips, lavender craft, and Williamsburg style holiday decorations. Most class fees will be $25, though some classes will have an additional fee to cover the cost of materials for the workshops. Sign up for any four classes and attend the other classes at no additional charge, except for application supply fees.
