Native Plant Garden Design for Small Spaces

9:00–10:00 a.m.

This program will include practical design tips and examples for featuring native plants for small residential spaces. Participants will be invited to create a design for their own small space using resources and templates provided by the Lehigh Gap Nature Center. This program is open to all, but will be basic and requires no garden design experience.

Fall Garden Clean Up

10:00–11:00 a.m.

A relaxed and friendly review of the many tasks involved in a fall garden clean up, or as some folks refer to it, putting the garden to bed for the winter. We will list tasks, ask why, and then you can decide what/if you do and when. Bring a pencil and your fall thinking cap.

Tomato Tasting Event

11:00–12:00 noon

You decide which are the best tasting tomatoes! Previous tasting included approximately 40 heirloom varieties and 20 hybrids!
