New Gardening Class! Design for Homeowners.

Are you struggling to create a garden that suits your family’s needs?  Does everything you plant end up dying?  Do plants in your garden often end up looking like they don’t belong? Have you moved your patio set a thousand times and it still doesn’t look right?

Curves and textured shrubs make a foundation bed beautiful.

The Passionate Gardener is teaching a class just for you!  In two sessions, four hours in total, I will give you the basics you need in order to plan and create a garden that meets your needs.  Whether you are hoping for maximum curb appeal, to grow your own vegetables and fruit, or to have the perfect space for kids to play and guests to enjoy themselves, I can help.

The class will explore the form and function of design, themes of gardens, scale, curves and lines, ‘borrowed views’ and practical advice on where to locate items such as compost piles, vegetable gardens, and dining areas.  Students will be given a chance to work on their own scale drawings, and may bring in photos and measurements of their own gardens for trouble-shooting.

The class will run Thursday January 19, and Thursday January 26, from 7-9 p.m.  The location will be announced later, but will be fairly central.  The class will run as long as we have a minimum of 12 participants, and a maximum of 14.

Cost $50/ person.  Registration will close January 16th, and all fees must be paid by that date.  Fees will be non-refundable after January 16th.  (Fees will be refunded in full in the event that the class does not run.)  * Note: These dates have been changed from the original post.

Please contact Kate at The Passionate Gardener for more information.

When your view is less than ideal, The Passionate Gardener can help.
