We hope you will join
The Garden Club of Weaverville
for Our April Meeting
Program: Meadow Gardening a la Carte
a slide show and discussion with Randy Burroughs

 

Tuesday, April 9th at 9:30 am

In the Weaverville Town Hall Community Room

The art of combining your favorite wildflowers and grasses into a living tapestry is now possible as never before. We’ll look at what meadowing is historically, artistically and ecologically; and discuss the nuances of nature-based gardening. You’ll learn to design, prep the site, buy plants and install your meadow. Birds & butterflies will thank you.
