No one is born a gardener, but everyone was born to garden. Learn the Hows and the Whys – the proven science – that make a garden thrive. This weekend of garden lessons, based on instructor Daryl Beyers’ book, The New Gardener’s Handbook, includes classroom lectures, hands-on projects, and a field trip to a local nursery, all designed to present the fundamentals of gardening in a fun and informative way.

The program will begin with a Zoom kick-off lecture from 5:00 to 6:30 pm on Friday evening, and will be followed by in-person days at HHG from 10:00 am to 3:30 pm on Saturday and Sunday. Please note, all participants must have a copy of The New Gardener’s Handbook for the in-person portion of the program.

Daryl Beyers is author of The New Gardener’s Handbook: Everything you need to know to grow a beautiful and bountiful garden, available from Timber Press. He has more than thirty years of professional landscaping experience, specializing in residential garden design and development. As a staff writer, photographer, and editor for Fine Gardening magazine, he authored two special issues on garden design, and he served as contributing garden editor for Martha Stewart Living. His articles on gardening and garden design have also appeared in Horticulture and HGTV Magazine.

Advanced reservations are required as capacity is limited.
