The holidays are over – goody. Now it’s time for workshops, classes, all-day seminars, slide shows – all
about plants and soil and creating beauty in nature. Hey, I’m there! Here’s what I’ve signed up for (so far):
Sponsored by the Sustainable Sites Initiative, an all-day Seminar about Sustainable Landscapes, covering the issues of zero waste, right plant/right place, permeable paving, rain gardens, and the Sustainable Sites Initiative itself. GOBS for me to write about here on the Rant and back home on my blog. I begged a press pass to this $79 event and guess what – it worked!
And at Green Springs Garden in Northern Virginia, 2 lectures, $10 each: "Survival in the National Garden", which is an update on the National Garden with Holly Shimizu, Executive Director of the U.S. Botanic Garden and popular local speaker. And Jeff Lowenfels, author of Teaming with Microbes: A Gardener’s Guide to the Soil Food Web, a much-praised book I admit I haven’t read yet.
SO, fellow students, what classes are you taking?
