2015 Gardening Classes

I am rushing to get all my “To Do’s” done so I can leave for the beach with my stack of gardening journals and  a scratch pad to design my next garden renovation.  (Yes, I am hopelessly addicted!)  Even at the end of September the garden is hard to leave behind.

I cannot lie, I love gaudy plants!

The good news is that the 2015 Garden Happy! Course Schedule is published.   I would love for you to make plans to be here with me next year to see the garden in 4 seasons, and learn how you can create your own personal paradise.

 You may view the schedule and itinerary here:  2015 Course Schedule

OR Click here for a printable document:  2015 Course Schedule

You will find 3 dates listed for each course because I teach each one 3 times. This keeps the classes small and gives people more flexibility in scheduling.  We will be in the garden  for at least a part of every class.

The registration fee is $425 for the program of 8 three-hour courses, plus the kitchen class on “Preserving the Harvest”,  private garden tours, a plant swap & social, and answers to your gardening questions via phone or email throughout the season.  (Returning students may register for $275.)  Please see my website for more information or to contact me:  https://www.learntogarden.net

I accept only 54 students per year to keep class size to 18 people.  A $50 deposit by check or credit card will hold your place. You may also want to send a list of dates you plan to attend so you get first choice.

I hope to see you in the garden!
