Classes at SCC

This fall I'm teaching two classes in Southeast Community College's continuing education program--check out page 23 of the catalog (and page 30 for registration instructions).

Nebraska Wildflowers
October 1 & 8, 6-8pm
Discover what natives to plant for easy maintenance, more butterflies and all-season interest. We’ll take a special look at fall perennials and shrubs. Topics will include organic care to increase wildlife and help the garden grow great on its own. Garden coach Benjamin Vogt will help negotiate the world of wildflowers.

(We will hopefully go visit a local garden to view fall plants in bloom, provided any are left in this early-blooming season. Still, we can look at plants for winter interest and garden structure, key for wildlife.)

Writing Our Gardens
October 3 & 10, 6-8pm
Keeping a garden journal will open your eyes to the wonders right out your door. We’ll explore how to
record daily observations, resources to I.D. wildlife, and be inspired by other writers and the beauty all
around us to live a more connected life.

(And for this class I would also like to spend time writing outside and observing what we can, then sharing those moments with each other.)
