27 Jan Gardening Classes Begin Soon!

Gardening Classes Begin Soon!

Hot off the press, the 2016 Natureworks Winter/Early Spring Class Brochure is ready. I am so excited about the many workshops we are offering in the next few months. The first two classes are coming up soon. On February 13, I will be teaching The Healing Power of Plants and Growing Plants that Heal. You can now register for classes on line through our Natureworks website.  Please click here to view our web pages.

This year wee are putting a special focus on growing plants in your yard that serve a purpose. In fact, we are offering an all day seminar on Saturday, February 27th called A Landscape for All Creatures. I have spent many hours in my home office preparing for this talk. We will learn how to make your yard a welcoming place for birds, pollinators, butterflies, hummingbirds, wildlife and your family and friends.

You will see a common theme not only in our weekly emails, but also our Facebook posts and all of the classes and workshops we will be teaching this year.
