Let’s have fun making flower arrangements – thinking “outside the usual flower vase”
With our flower gardens in full bloom now is the time to have fun making flower arrangements for our own enjoyment or for gifting to our friends. This class will give you the basics on the standard tools for flower arranging. Then we’ll venture down a different path and come up with some fun and unusual ways to arrange flowers with recycled items such as tin cans, yogurt containers, wine and beer bottles, paper bags and nature items such as twigs and rocks.
Create healthy growing conditions for all kinds of plants with living, breathing soil in our semi-arid climate. Discover techniques for successfully growing tasty vegetable varieties in our fast-changing and challenging environment, while understanding your garden as part of a larger whole, including as habitat for pollinators and other critters.
Jane Shellenberger is the publisher/editor of Colorado Gardener which she founded in 1997 and author of Organic Gardener’s Companion, Growing Vegetables in the West (Fulcrum Books, 2012).
