It’s also an opportunity to meet some of the local folks who create their garden-themed gifts and artwork, including Jan Kalyani Lochner, famous for her pressed-flower note cards, photographer Chuck Phillips, who photographs all things “nature,” and the accomplished artist behind Gordes by Hedda. Additionally, Kathryn Hall, author of Plant Whatever Brings You Joy: Blessed Wisdom from the Garden will be on hand from noon to 1:00PM to meet you and sign copies of her book for you!

Gardening and farming experts will be on hand to share tips, including Sonoma Compost. And in-house gardening experts can answer your questions about spring and summer planting, and more.

We hope to see you there!
