5 Sessions: Wednesdays, February 6, 13, (skip 20), 27, Mar 6, 13, 6:30–8:30pm
We have the desire to make a garden, but then we grapple with how to start designing our home garden spaces. Design a layout plan 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. 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 copying. Other supplies will be provided. Limited to 16 students.
Fee $150 member, $188 nonmember
