Loving Lavender

Thursday, August 7, 2014, 6-7pm

Lavender_WithBeeMaster Gardeners of Greene County invite you to stop by the Botanical Center at Nathanael Greene Park, 2400 South Scenic on Thursday August 7, 2014 from 6-7pm (weather permitting) for “Learn to Grow in the Garden: Loving Lavender”. Our casual hands-on class will introduce you to the beauty of this herb as it fills the garden with sensory delight from its soothing and refreshing fragrance to its multitude of uses. We will see it growing in the herb garden, talk about varieties, demonstrate oil, bottle and wand making, and answer all your lavender questions. This class will be taught by Master Gardeners in our beautiful gardens. The general public is invited and we need many Master Gardeners to attend to help and learn! Our Lavender class will count towards Master Gardeners Continuing Education! Come out and meet us as we learn to love lavender! If you have questions about the class call: (417) 881-8909 x311

This fall, the Master Gardeners of Greene County will team up again with the Springfield Watergarden Society in offering another fine garden tour. The Fall Garden Tour will have only have 8 garden stops, so there will be plenty of time to fit this in between fall festivals.

All gardens can be toured from 1-6 pm. But stick around because one SWS garden will also be open additional hours for a sample of what an SWS Tiki Tour is like!! Come and go between 6-8 pm for samples of chili and sweets while viewing the garden lights at twilight.

Tickets sales will begin September 1, 2014 for only $5 per person in advance. On the day of the tour, tickets will be $7. They can be purchased from Garden Adventures in Nixa, Maschino’s, Wickman Gardens, Schaffitzel’s Greenhouse, and from the Master Gardener Hotline Room and  Gift Shop at the Botanical Center, 2400 S. Scenic.
