Garden Maintenance Workshops
Jul 16 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Garden Maintenance Workshops

Gardens grow, and that can be both a blessing and a curse. The fresh young blooms of spring fade, stalks bend and droop, groundcover runs amok, and spent flowers turn brown on their stems. What’s a gardener to do? With a little maintenance know-how, you can extend the bloom of some favorite perennials, get a second bloom from others, control invasive plantings, prop or strengthen weak stems, and overall neaten your summer and fall garden. Join us for three evenings in the garden as we get hands-on experience deadheading, pruning, thinning, dividing, and transplanting–and keep your garden looking grand all season long.

Both departments are critical to the financial viability of the organization, yet they view the revenue generated from grants and donor contributions quite differently. How many times have you scratched your head when comparing your agency’s financials to the fundraising reports or been asked by a board member to explain the difference? This course offers the answers. It will provide proactive tips in structuring grants and donor requests to ease the cumbersome back office reporting, as well as how to craft a meaningful budget.
