Now that 40 degree temps are finally on their way out and spring is here to stay, we’re more than excited to get outside and start working on and in our gardens. The Master Gardener Society of Oakland County, Inc. is ready to help you make your gardening dreams a reality. Tickets are now on sale for an all day seminar that promises to be chock-full of ideas to help bring your garden to life. The event is open to the public and will be held on Saturday, April 23rd. Doors will open at 7:00 a.m. and the seminar goes from 8:00 a.m. – 4:15 p.m.
You’ll be inspired by three nationally known keynote speakers: Karen Bussolini, Ellen Ecker Ogden, and Barry Glick. In addition, you’ll enjoy a large garden market where local vendors and artisans will be selling garden-related artwork, gifts and plants. A continental breakfast, lunch, snacks and program materials are included with your ticket and live jazz entertainment will be provided by pianist Kerry Price and the Dave Tatrow Quartet. You’ll learn what types of gardening combinations, including wildflowers, work best and how to design using color, contrast and movement to create a dynamic display. If you’re interested in growing your own vegetable garden, you’ll learn techniques for growing food in an elegant and artful way. Master Gardeners attending this event will receive five hours of Master Gardener Education Credits.
