Why Doesn’t My Garden Look Like That?
10 Questions to Ask About Your Garden’s Design
Wed, Feb 8 at 1 pm / Rainier Room
We have all been in and seen photos of gorgeous gardens that leave us in awe and make us wonder, “Why can’t my garden look like that?” It would be wonderful if there were a one-size-fits-all solution to garden design, but every space and every gardener is unique. Drawing on personal experience as well as his work with outstanding gardeners and designers from around the U. S., Steve Aitken, Editor of Fine Gardening, will present a series of questions to ask when considering how to improve your garden. Whether your area is sunny or shady, sloped or flat, large or small, these questions will address fundamental design issues, which, if addressed can greatly enhance a garden’s form.
Willi Evans Galloway – Author, “Grow. Cook. Eat”
Oh, Grow Up!
Get More Food by Growing Up with DIY Trellises
Wed, Feb 8 at 2 pm / DIY Stage
Growing up is the easiest way to squeeze more food into a small vegetable garden. In this hands-on workshop Willi will demonstrate how to make a super sturdy tomato cage, a pretty bamboo cage for supporting peppers, tomatoes, and eggplants, and an A-frame that cucumbers and peas love to scramble up. All of these projects can be built with basic hand tools (a power drill is optional!) and are perfect for people—like Willi—who are DIY challenged.

Members resolve to commit to over a 100% increase in their personal use of edible plant foods by 2020 by eating more, growing more, gathering together( as friends) more and sharing more with those ‘left out’ in these troubled times. Kerr will discuss why this needs to happen..” ..for the common good for and by...We the People”. and provides a web source for encouragement and guidance to begin the journey as a ” saint Augustine grassroots movement.“
