Joy Creek Nursery presents a unique opportunity to work on a hands-on basis with two nationally renowned garden writers/gardeners, Ann Lovejoy and Lucy Hardiman.

Hardiman and Lovejoy will analyze a section of the Four Seasons Garden at Joy Creek Nursery and edit, renovate and recreate the border emphasizing sustainable gardening practices. Areas to be explored in this workshop are: pruning, lifting and transplanting existing plantings; rejuvenating the existing soil with organic techniques; developing a design concept; creating color combinations for interest throughout the four seasons; and developing a maintenance schedule.

The class starts at 10 a.m. and ends at 4 p.m. The $80 registration fee includes a catered lunch. Dress appropriately for the weather and bring gardening gloves. For more information and to register, call (503) 543-7474 or go online
