A Garden of Sensory Delights.
  • This event has passed.

This program takes place in-person Saturday, June 12 (Rain Date: Saturday, June 19)

The power of a sensory garden is its ability to stimulate all five senses as well as provide a safe space to relax, reflect, and connect with nature. Carrie and Faith discuss how to develop a garden of native plants that appeal to a wide range of sensory experiences and encourage you to slow down and enjoy the world around you. A garden tour highlights their presentation.
