Take a Class, Make an Arrangement

There are always classes and interesting talks at both the Botanical Gardens and Sarah P Duke Gardens
I will try to remember to mention something every month about both places.

Controlling Exotic Invasive Plants

This workshop targets the home land owner, and will be useful for home gardeners and land managers as well.
