The Eau Claire Garden Club invites members and friends to Planting Design Basics. This workshop presented by Lisa Orgler explores the beauty of arranging plant materials in your garden beds. Topics include the elements of planting design (form, texture and color), traditional and contemporary planting models, plus some basic graphics of plant symbols and drawing in elevation, so you can communicate your ideas to others.
The workshop will be held at the CVTC Energy Education Center from 1:30-4:30 pm on Saturday, March 7, 2020.
The cost of this workshop is $5 for members and $10 for non-members.
Along with pencil and paper bring a laptop, smartphone, garden books and/or plant catalogs as we will use them as resources to explore plant options.
