Topic: The Garden in a Changing World
There is no denying that our World is in transition and so is our home gardens. A warming climate is changing the way we garden. The Pacific Northwest always had its own unique situations with our weather patterns and climate. Are you ready to explore and even embrace changes? Jeff de Jong will be delving into the possibilities of how our gardens can remain our place of pleasure. It’s the perfect time for making choices to keep your garden beautiful. Sometimes small actions are a big deal.
