Learn in the Garden

Lakewold Gardens is pleased to bring you our 2017 “Learn in the Garden” lecture series.  As a key element in our mission, this program was designed to help educate, train and involve our local community members. This year we are excited to provide six opportunities to increase your gardening knowledge and skills. Each class includes an hour lecture given by an expert in their field followed by two hours of  hands-on learning at our National Historic garden. Field training is done in small groups to give you individual attention and ensure you get the most out of your experience.

Classes start at 9am. Register early as class size is limited!

Recommended donation of $10 per lecture to cover expenses.
