Beat the winter doldrums and prep for gardening season! Winter is the perfect time to begin planning your garden for the spring, get inspiration and learn new techniques from experts.

The talks take place at 1 pm on the second Wednesday of every month at Linden Place. The purpose is to share proven, science based gardening practices and to reach gardeners of all ages and abilities for learning new techniques, avoid bad practices, and share your own expertise. All presentations during the year are lead by trained and/or professional gardeners and will encourage group discussions and questions.
