Robin Haglund at the 2009 Northwest Flower & Garden ShowJanuary 14, 2009
The buzz around the 2009 Northwest Flower & Garden Show is getting louder. Can you hear it? Flora’s Blog for the show recently posted part one of a two-part interview with garden coach Robin Haglund (moi) about the kid and family-focused program she is putting together for this year’s Sproutopia! stage. Read the interview here.
I’m very excited the show has invited me to bring this program to the garden show this year, and I hope to meet many of my readers at the show for my Worm composting presentation and/or my gardening with dogs presentation with Lisa Wogan. Here’s more about each program:
Who Wants Garbage for Dinner? The Wonderful Way of Worms!
Saturday, February 21st at 2pm & Sunday, February 22nd at 2pm
Summary: As we worry about building a better environment for the future, we should start teaching our children ways they can contribute. In this lively hands-on session for kids and parents, we’ll look at the “naked-eye” creatures that come to live in worm bins! How do worms eat our garbage, and what comes out when they’re done munching on fruit and vege scraps, coffee grounds and egg shells. Kids will love this, and parents will too!
Got Dogs? Gardening with Canine Companions
Sunday, February 22nd at 9:45am
Summary: Does your dog enjoy your garden even more than you do? Gardeners who share their gardening spaces with canine companions face special challenges like spotty lawns, chewed shrubs, unwanted planting bed excavations, trampled perennials, and poopy piles in all the wrong places. Join gardening coach Robin Haglund, who has cared for dozens of dogs and solved a multitude of dog challenges, and Lisa Wogan, author of Dog Park Wisdom and Unleashed, for useful tips and training tricks to bring the best out of the garden you share with your best doggie pals.
As the show approaches, I’ll post updates…and may even offer a contest for free show tickets. Interested? Keep reading and sending in your great gardening questions!
