2017 Educational Seminars at Zilker Botanical Garden
Garden Decorating 101
Recycle, reclaim & repurpose to enhance your garden space.
Create an outdoor sanctuary by infusing bits of your own personality into your garden. You know what calms you, what aspects of an environment make you feel safest and most peaceful. Bring out those aspects by enhancing your garden in ways that accentuate these elements. Travis County Master Gardener Martha King will show how nature is the ultimate recycler, reusing everything it can and that creators of garden spaces can use nature as an example.
Seminar is free and open to the public. No RSVP is required.
Zilker park entrance fee is $2 per adult, $1 per child (ages 3-12) or seniors (age 62 & over), $3 for non-Austin Residents. Cash or check accepted. For more information, see Calendar at Texas A&M AgriLife Extension
