WICHITA — Plan now to attend the 2023 Design & Grow Gardening Workshop, scheduled for Saturday, March 4th, 2023.  The morning lectures, from 9:00am to 12:00pm, will provide ideas and information for beginning and seasoned gardeners alike.  Attendees will have the opportunity to learn, collect new ideas, and find inspiration for both the garden & landscape. The cost to attend the morning lectures is $10 through February 24th. After that date, the fee will be $15.  

As an additional option this year, we will also offer three gardening workshops from 1:30-3:30pm during an afternoon session.  The afternoon workshops are for gardeners who are eager for a hands-on experience to learn more about Seed Starting, Lawn Mowing, or Composting.  Space is limited for the afternoon workshops, and a separate registration is required.  The cost to attend an afternoon workshop is $20 through February 24th.  After that date, the fee will be $25.  

This year’s event is offered in person only at:
