Winter is not quite over despite our warm temperatures.  Too early to get in the garden but the time to dream and sign up for classes and lectures.  Thought you all might be interested in these three workshops.  Note the contact information at the end.

Learn to Weave a Twig Garden Structure with Susy Perrine

Using techniques that perform as well today as they did centuries ago, sturdy twigs and

saplings form a strong framework for climbing vegetables and flowers. With sides and a

roof, this shelter is also a charming spot to read a book or admire your garden while sipping

lemonade. We will build a wattle garden structure on site to learn these simple techniques; you

will leave with information and experience to build your own at home. Local green materials

will be used in this one-day workshop.

Bring garden clippers for cutting twigs, work gloves, and a lunch.

June 16, rain date June 17. sat., 10-3. $75 Maximum 8 students.

valleys” to create interesting organic shapes and images.
