UPCOMING WORKSHOPS & EVENTS:
Native Plants & the Vital Landscape
Sat. Sept. 14 at 10 am
With Chris Davenport
We will explore the many layers of a garden all aflush with native plants – a garden that is pleasing to the human eye but also serves to support our native fauna like birds and pollinators. Chris will lead us through the beautiful plant palette that natives offer - from the tree canopy and small flowering trees to shrubs, perennials and ground covers. Come prepared to share ideas and ask questions.
Free, but please pre-register at the Garden Center or call 828-645-3937.
Kokedama Workshop – Make & Take
Sat. Sept. 14 at 1 pm
With Treasure Smith
Create a lush addition to your indoor plant collection. In this workshop, Treasure Smith will lead you - step by step - through the artful process of crafting your own beautiful Kokedama moss ball garden to take home.
Kokedama is a traditional Japanese bonsai technique where the plant’s roots are encased in a soil and sphagnum moss ball held together with sheet moss and bound with string. Also called “string gardens”, Kokedama can be hung, or placed in a decorative container.
It’s fun and easy! The workshop fee covers the instruction and all materials needed to design your Kokedama - your choice of a 2-4” tropical plant, soil, sphagnum & sheet moss, string, and macramé hanger. Reserve your spot on Eventbrite! $24.99 plus tax. Limited to 10 participants.
National Indoor Plant Week
The oxygen doesn't arrive until the plants do!

Andrew Goodheart Brown, a.k.a. the Urban Orchardist, has taught permaculture classes around the world, and he brings his wealth of knowledge to this class - including decades of personal experience with growing fruit organically in Western North Carolina. His own yard is a paradise of fruit and edibles.
