[FERNDALE] – Learn how to make a flower garden “pop” with color and design so that passers-by say “wow” – at Sullivan Renaissance’s summer gardening seminar on Wednesday, July 8 at 6:00 p.m. in the CVI Center in Ferndale.
The free seminar will offer insights into what Sullivan Renaissance judges look for when they review community gardens around the county. This information is helpful to everyone who wants to learn the how-to’s of gardening. Sullivan Renaissance Horticulture Coordinator Diana K. Weiner is the instructor.
While offering valuable tips and tricks to help all gardeners care for beautiful gardens, the seminar will be particularly helpful to the 54 community projects that are beautifying the area’s gateways, houses of worship, parks, cemeteries, schools and libraries.
These communities are preparing for visits from Sullivan Renaissance judges between August 6 and 9 to evaluate gardens and projects. The teams of judges, including panelists from Canada, will be awarding monetary prizes based on how well the volunteers have performed, including awards for the best “showing of flowers.” Prizes range from $1000 to $25,000 depending on the program and the size of the project.
Space for the seminar is limited and pre-registration is requested. Refreshments will be provided.
