Spring Classes - May

Zendala
Learn new tangles and techniques on the beautiful Zendala tiles from Zentangle. I will provide all the supplies you need to master this new approach to Zentangle. If you have taken ‘Beginning Zentangle’ then come explore this fun class. Bring your supplies from previous classes and we’ll provide additional supplies to help you create two beautiful mandalas, one on black and one on white using pre-strung Zendala tiles.

Make Your Own Container Crevice Garden
One of the latest gardening trends is growing plants that need special drainage in the cracks between vertical rocks. Try out this gardening style without buying tons of rock or renovating your yard. Bring your own trough or other bowl container 12-15” wide. We’ll provide soil, rock, plants and lots of instruction and ideas.

Take Control of your Sprinkler System
Learn how to monitor, make adjustments and understand all the functions on your sprinkler controller. Features you might not be using now can make watering easier while saving water and money! Learn the latest technology in irrigation systems. Many types of controllers, heads and nozzles will be available in class for hands-on experimentation. Each participant receives a free high-efficiency nozzle for their sprinkler system. Weather permitting, part of the class will be outdoors looking at watering systems.

From rock placement, soil choices and indispensable plants, we will touch on all the basic aspects of beginning a rock garden. Also tour the Gardens’ rock garden with its primary steward.
