Walking Workshop – Every Home Garden Needs Distinctive Ornamental Grasses

Workshop to be conducted at Goodly Gardens in Worcester, PA.

Seize the opportunity to make your home garden unique!  Observe and discover a wide variety of cool and warm season ornamental grasses in a home garden.  A casual, up close walking tour of Thom Mrazik’s naturalistic Goodly Gardens, a PHS Blue Ribbon Award-winning home garden, as well as a Penn State Extension-certified pollinator- and watershed-friendly garden. 

Consider the distinctly different and unique features of cool and warm season ornamental grasses. A foundation of naturalistic-style design. Dandy en masse. Full of animation and emotion. Providing season-long beauty as they mature over time. Truly a pleasure to behold.

And, of course, all your questions, including “What’s that?” will be answered!  You will, no doubt, take away with you a greater knowledge of, and enthusiasm for, using ornamental grasses in your garden, even claiming that last sunny spot in your garden for stellar ornamental grasses.

This is a members only event and is limited to 15 participants. There is no registration fee, but registration is required.  Instead of a fee, help feed the food insecure/needy by bringing to the garden location a donation of 5-10 lbs. of nonperishable groceries (e.g., canned, dry, and nonperishable goods) which will be donated to Martha's Choice Food Pantry in Norristown.

This event is full. Address provided in the registration confirmation e-mail.
