Inviting Nature Into Your Garden
Saturday, January 20th; 10:00am
Meet at the Crescent Farm
Free for members / Free with admission
Instructors: Crescent Farm Staff – Leigh Adams & John Latsko
Learn about water conservation and sustainable gardening, with hands-on experience! The Crescent Farm, located in the heart of the Arboretum just west of Baldwin Lake, is a reclaimed landscape where we explore new and ancient horticulture techniques for water conservation and food production. This is an educational training series. Please bring gloves, drinking water; wear close-toed shoes and a hat.
Saturday, December 16: Lasagna Mulching – Using what you have on hand or can source locally is truly sustainable gardening. This workshop will show you how using cardboard and mulch will build fertile productive soil. This is also a proven method for removing your lawn and reducing the weed load as you transition into a water wise landscape. There will be a visual presentation and a hands-on activity where you will actually help us to build our new Crescent Farm.
