You may have the desire to make a garden, but then grapple with how to start designing your home garden spaces. Why not get some help in designing a layout for an area of your yard in this beginner-level class? Learn the organizational components of a coherent garden and practice the process of design with award-winning designer Christie Dustman. You will leave class with a plan in progress from which to continue your design explorations. This class is primarily about garden spaces rather than specific plant selection. In the final class, Christie will present various ways to work with professionals to install your design or ways to construct your design yourself. You will be required to draw a base plan for your site (with tutelage in class) and will need to purchase some drawing tools and pay for large format copying. Other supplies will be provided. Limited to 16 students.
Fee $175 member, $210 nonmember
