The Special Gardens for Small Spaces class will show you how to design and create a memorable or meaningful spot in your garden.  Attendees will be provided information/education on what is entailed for a small space garden and what to consider in creating memorial gardens, herb gardens/children’s herb gardens and healing gardens.  You will be provided folders containing design ideas for each of the topic gardens, a list of suggested plants for each of the topic gardens and a take home bag of seeds and or plant(s) to get you started. Attendees will actually start drawing and listing their own ideas at the workshop to complete at home.  Master Gardeners will provide one-on-one consult to attendees while they work on their designs at the workshop.  This lecture will show how to create a small oasis in your garden to incorporate into a corner of your landscape, whether it’s in your yard or on your patio. If space allows, we will also accept walk-in registration for $30 per class.

Registration fee is $25.

Deadline to register is Monday, May 22.



The Barn Series of Gardening Lectures & Workshops for the Shenandoah Valley Gardener
