The Sequim Botanical Garden Society is inviting the community to work alongside its members at the Sequim Botanical Garden in Carrie Blake Community Park near The James Center band shell, just north of the park.
Join experienced gardeners to learn more about plants and techniques that are successful in the community.
Each month, there will be two opportunities to lend a helping hand to the group and to contribute to the growth of the botanical garden. At 1 p.m. Tuesday, July 11, group members will kick off the season with a brief talk on the culture and care of lavender. This “Work to Learn” event is a chance to meet and welcome new friends and share collective wisdom of what works best in peninsula gardens.
At 1 p.m. Saturday, July 29, a work party is intended for everyone — including families — who are eager to spend part of their weekend nurturing the garden. Jean Pier will talk about “dead-heading for little helpers in the garden.”
Bring gardening gloves, tools, sunscreen and hats, and come mingle with other members of the community intent upon realizing the dream of a botanical garden.
For more information, contact Pier at email@example.com or 681-2308, and follow the group on Facebook.
