Master Gardener Talk Series with Donna Katsuranis

Learn how to be happier and more productive in your food garden.


May 9: Designing Gardens using Native Plants

Native plants are enjoying a new popularity – and rightly so. Rugged without belligerence, delicate without wimpiness, and beautiful without being prima donnas, they are the ultimate “Right-Plant/Right-Place”.

“When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect” – Aldo Leopold, 1948


May 23: Poetry Prose and Art in the Garden

From gardening as inspiration for words to words as inspiration for gardens, from gardens to feed our bodies to gardens to feed our souls, from ornamental gardening to garden ornaments, our gardens are our own expressions of beauty.

In this gentle presentation, we will play with the creativity that is the garden.
