Conversations on Nature
October 7, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
As we progress through summer, the Master Gardener Foundation of Spokane County will offer two more entertaining and educational events for your viewing pleasure. The Covid restrictions continue to impact our ability to provide in-person events so we will make the best of the circumstances and continue online.
The Summer and Fall sessions of the 2021 Conversations On Nature series will feature experienced gardeners speaking on the general topic of nurturing your gardens throughout the season. In August our speaker will discuss how to best add ornamental grasses to your garden and how to save and preserve blooms for later decorative use. Our final session in October will be a live, hands-on event making a table decoration using dried florals, natural components, and succulents to liven up your home decor. We’re hoping you will enjoy this session as a fun way to wrap up the growing season!
Please join us as we spend time together making our gardens our own!
Pumpkin Centerpiece with Succulents & Dried Florals presented by Kim Lango
Even after frost coats our gardens ushering in the cold winter, we can preserve the bounty of the summer garden with dried flowers & create beautiful designs to bring warmth & festivity to our homes. In this class, we will create a bespoke Centerpiece using decorative Pumpkins, succulents and dried flowers. Succulent Pumpkins last throughout the Fall season. After the centerpiece is past its usefulness, you can replant the succulents, for indoor use.
We will also discuss how to grow & dry the florals that we will be working with.
