April 18: Creating a Moonlight Garden
Is your garden the perfect place to relax at the end of a busy day? A well-designed evening garden delivers serenity, stillness, and harmony without tacking more stuff on the to-do list. Back by popular demand but speaking on a different subject, Linda Collins, of H.J. Benken Florist & Greenhouse, which has operated in Silverton since 1939, will teach you how to transform your garden into a moonlight retreat filled with calming sounds, lovely floral fragrances, and moonlit beauty.
Linda, a graduate of Ohio State University with a degree in agriculture education and horticulture, has 30-some years of experience in the horticulture industry as a teacher, florist, consultant, and public speaker. During her 20-year teaching career, Linda taught at Great Oaks Institute of Technology and Career Development where she received several “Teacher of the Year” and “Outstanding Educator” awards at the state, county and local level.
