Can spring be around the corner?  Gardeners can bring this softer season into focus with a session of classes that will, in five weeks, teach them to make their own landscape design!  Master Gardener Meredyth Hilton of Design Department is leading the classes, teaching students to discover their own design ethos and how to translate that into their own garden.

The two hour classes are fun, complete with snacks and drinks!
