OPTION #1: DESIGN
This advance planning design workshop will explore the beauty of arranging plant materials in your garden beds at an advanced level. Topics
will include the elements of planting design review, then dive into advanced planting models and designed plant communities. Some basic graphics of plant symbols and drawing in elevation will also be covered, so you can communicate your ideas to others. Though not required, participants are welcome to bring along their favorite plant books or catalogues, plus a laptop or iPad. This is a hands-on workshop, so please come prepared to learn, draw, design and have fun.
