Beginning and experienced gardeners alike can benefit from taking a step back from the single plant to view the whole plot. This discussion-based class highlights practices that have the greatest impact on creating a garden that delights you, along with tips for reducing cost and effort.  There is special emphasis on "Making the Most of Your Garden Palette", "Keeping the Demons at Bay", and "Embracing the Mental Challenges".  You will also receive Martha's Garden Coaching Questionnaire and Assessment Tool to help you clarify and verbalize your own garden priorities.  

Martha Rollefson has been an avid spare-time gardener for almost 40 years.  In the last 10 years she turned two back yards into Certified Wildlife Habitats (one in Connecticut and one in Etowah, NC).  She is also a certified bird feeding specialist with Wild Birds Unlimited in Hendersonville.  She gets great pleasure from sharing her passion for creating garden beauty with establishing a welcoming environment for wildlife.
