Gardening Workshop RetreatJune 21, 2017
Today’s the first day of summer, and here I am getting excited about fall!
I’ve been invited to teach a special, hands-on gardening workshop at the famed Bitters Co. in Skagit Valley. This is going to be a new kind of program for me in that I’ll be teaching a small group of people about design, dividing perennials, preparing a garden for winter and using the right tool for the job at hand.
What I’ll be teaching isn’t new for me, but how and where I’ll be teaching is.
Usually, I travel to a client’s residential garden to teach them at home. And, in these settings, I rarely have more than two or three students (a family) to teach. But, I am accustomed to sharing knowledge with very large groups when I lead nature walks or present at a large garden show.
And, teaching isn’t all attendees will get!
The Bitters Co folks will be serving lunch in the garden for everyone. We have a number of tools to give away thanks to Fiskars. There might be some perennial divisions to take home. And, everyone will have a chance to shop the Bitters Co import barn store while they’re there. Plus, it’s a gorgeous retreat destination near La Conner, Edison, Mount Vernon and Anacortes. And, the valley is just plain stunning in late summer.
