Building Public Gardens Committed to Demonstration and Education
Daisy Grice will demonstrate how to make large tissue paper flowers, which are fun to make and great for decorating; from statement centerpieces to inexpensive and festive party decor. Give yourself permission to play and come craft with us!
Mike Smedley, Mr. Action Line, will be discussing the best plants to AVOID planting in the Durango area. Mike is a lifetime member of the Durango Botanical Society and very well known for his amazing home garden, his knowledge of bulbs, native plants and certainly his sense of humor! This will be a seminar not to be missed. Best of all - it's FREE!!
