EcoSavvy Symposium EcoSavvy Gardening Symposium
Saturday, May 9, 2015
 (Rescheduled from 2/21/15)
As gardens evolve, change is inevitable. A sunny spot is shaded by the growth of a tree. A favorite plant fails to thrive through a harsh winter. A collection of plants matures, resulting in spaces that are out of balance and difficult to maintain. Gardeners will learn that no garden is ever finished and that success requires embracing change. >> Registation Details
