$10 Garden members, $15 non-members
Location: Oakhurst Garden 435 Oakview Road, Decatur, GA 30030

As climates and other conditions change we are faced with challenges and opportunities for adaptation. Learn techniques to be more flexible and successful when dealing with new invasive insects, plants, and predators. Glynis Ward will discuss changing zones and micro climates and introduce methods to help you garden in our changing times. Even though mean temperatures are rising, we won’t be growing palms or oranges any time soon. It’s not about average temperatures, but about extremes.
