Learn how to bring the vibrant colors beloved by Monet, VanGogh, Gertrude Jekyll and Georgia O’Keefe into your gardens to make them into a living canvas that brings beauty through the seasons.
Join designer Charlotte Albers for this creative workshop aimed at helping invigorate your gardens through the strategic use of key plants. A comprehensive plant talk will look at best picks for varying site conditions including wet or dry, sun or shade, with a focus on cold-hardy varieties suited to our region. Don’t worry – we’ll talk annuals too! Then design your own garden using color guides and plant catalogs and take home a custom planting plan.
$45 fee includes handouts, a custom planting plan, and refreshments.
