Help nature thrive in even the smallest spaces. Attend this event to learn about gardening in containers and other limited spaces from author and artist Lara Mrosovsky.

Lara will lead you through tips for success in choosing hardy plants to grow — from vegetables and culinary herbs to perennials and “wild” plants. A feast for your eyes and feed pollinators and yourself!

This event is suitable for new gardeners and those with more experience who wish to apply or adapt their knowledge to growing plants on roofs, balconies, and other unlikely places.

Participants will be provided with pots, seeds, and soil so that you can take home a bit of the magic and watch it grow.
