NGBH Gardens at Bagaduce Music, 49 South St
Daniel Cooke will lead a tour of the native Goldenrods and Asters at the NGBH gardens beginning with a short walk around the gardens to see the two genera in situ and discuss ecological characteristics of both, observing the flowers blooming in the landscape. The workshop will continue indoors where specific botanical traits will be identified and compared for a more in-depth understanding of the structures of the plants. Fee: $25. Space is limited; pre-registration is required to reserve your spot.
