Learn how to care for peonies at ‘Work to Learn’ party

Members of the Sequim Botanical Garden Society invite the community to a “Work to Learn” Party demonstration with Jean Pier, former society president, and designer of the peony bed at the Terrace Garden, at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 25 at the Terrace Garden at Carrie Blake Community Park.

Pier, a former Master Gardener who has a PhD in geochemisty, will talk about peony varieties and their care. Pier has lived in Sequim for 20 years and has been involved with the Terrace Garden development for more than 10 years.

As a special offer, peony plants will be available — each for a $10 donation to the society.

Participants are encouraged to work alongside the garden volunteers caring for the peony bed. Those who do not have time to help are welcome to observe the activity and see the renovation underway at the Terrace Garden.

The Sequim Botanical Garden Society is a volunteer partner with the City of Sequim and a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization providing education and a visual demonstrations of what can be done in home gardening with research-based horticultural practices near the band shell in Carrie Blake Community Park.

For more information, contact Dona Brock at BROCKDL88@gmail.com or 360-460-8865 and follow the Society on facebook at fb.me/SequimBotanicalGar den or visit SequimBotani calGarden.org.
