DECORATIVE KITCHEN GARDENS: COLLABORATIVE CONTAINERS
May 26th, Saturday, 9:30AM - 11AM

If you, like me, have limited outdoor space in the sun, outdoor containers are a compact way to make sure you get your daily vegetable season with fresh herbs and decorate with fresh-cut flowers. Different species offer complimentary features and can be combined to promote growth and good health for each other. In this workshop, designer Chris Zaima will begin with a selection of images of finished plantings and will then demonstrate the art of mixing plant material to create beautiful and useful kitchen garden containers. $30 Members, $35 Non-Members.
Hollister House Garden. 300 Nettleton Hollow Road. Washington CT. 860.868.2200
