Enjoy the 2015 Garden Walk from an expert's perspective at October 18 event
Janet Macunovich, well-known Michigan garden expert, captured the 'best of the best' advice from several of this year's garden owners for her column in the May issue of Michigan Gardener magazine.
On Sunday, October 18 in the Matthaei Botanical Gardens auditorium, Janet will present a visual tour of the 2015 Garden Walk gardens, with photographs by Steven Nikkila. She'll reveal the secrets of making and maintaining such beautiful landscapes, followed by a panel discussion featuring many of the garden owners. You'll have the chance to ask questions of Janet and the garden owners.
After the panel discussion, participants are invited to revisit one of the 2015 gardens, a stunning hillside landscape created by David Baker (photo below).
The program will start at 2:00 pm at the Matthaei Botanical Gardens auditorium. Cost is $20 per person. All proceeds will benefit the Michigan Division WNF&GA Student Internship endowment at MBGNA.
Seating is limited and pre-registration is required. Please click here for the registration form.
