LS101picClass:  Landscaping 101
Saturday, Oct. 7 — 10:15am
$15 general admission/$10 Homestead Atlanta members – registration required

This is not a professional landscape design class.  This is an unintimidating discussion of basic garden design tenets and how to apply them in real life.  This class is geared toward the home gardener who wants to tackle a good bit of landscaping on her own but is overwhelmed by conflicting internet advice and baffling design rules.

We’ll help you sort through the information clutter and provide some solid stepping stones to get you started on the creative path to rewarding and enjoyable garden planning.

Instructor:  Garden*Hood’s Kacey Cloues.  Not until she was an adult did Kacey realize there was even such a field as “garden design.”  Up to then the only gardening she knew was the astoundingly breathtaking perennial beds created by her paternal grandmother, and  the edible gardens planted by her mother and maternal grandfather.  She learned gardening as an expression of joy and reverence punctuated by sweat, lots of hard work and sometimes tears, frustration and disappointment, and a deep sense of wonder and awe.  And that’s the the goal of this Landscaping 101 class:  to rekindle the creative spirit of gardening that – bounded gently by basic guidelines – rewards uniqueness and personality over adherence to strict rules and expectations.

Register:  The cost of the class is $15 for the general public and $10 for members of Homestead Atlanta (please bring proof of membership on the day of the class).

Space is limited.  Purchase tickets by clicking the Pay Pal BUY NOW button below or by calling Garden*Hood at 404-880-9848.  Please include your full name, phone number, and email.  We fully protect your personal information and will only contact you if we need to reschedule the class due to inclement weather.

Details:  The class will be held outdoors here at the nursery.  Please dress for the weather (sunscreen, hats, and sun glasses are strongly recommended), and feel free to bring snacks and beverages.  In the event of dangerous or exceptionally inclement weather, the class will be rescheduled.  We’ll call you the morning of the event to alert you of scheduling changes.
