So excited to have Cathy Smith join us with her beautiful presentation:

The Secret Life of Vines!
Nature-Friendly Gardening Webinar!
February 25, noon-1:30

Live on Zoom!

Vines are something we see everyday-in gardens and yards, covering fences and houses, strangling trees in the woods-and how much do we really know about them? Some are destructive, others are graceful and beautiful--and all appear mysterious. And it seems like they all climb when we blink!

When I was little, an older lady in our neighborhood, Mrs. Woods- who made and sold beautiful Barbie doll clothes--lived in a big brick house completely covered in ivy vines. I just loved looking at all the green leaves. But why were they climbing all over a house?

Please join us during this last cold month of winter for a gorgeous presentation 
on the mystery of vines! You may REGISTER HERE! or on the flyer below!

ALSO, free spring seeds are coming! Stay tuned!
