Laurie Smith, Fat Blossom Farms
and artist Kathy Dickhut
Tuesday August 26, 7:00 pm
At the home of
Barbara and Joe Moore
1431 W Fargo
We all love to decorate our homes with cut flowers from the garden and to spice up our gardens with sculptures and fountains. But there is another way to decorate the home and garden....using found objects and products from our own gardens, plus a little imagination.
Join us for the final member program of the year at the home of Barbara and Joe Moore. Laurie Smith of Fat Blossom Farms will show us how they re-purpose wood, leaves and other natural products into garden "whimsies" that create magical fairy garden vignettes. And artist Kathy Dickhut will tell us about how she gathers herbs, dried flowers and other botanicals to fill custom potpourri sachets and curiosity cabinets.
Both presenters will have samples of their products for sale!
We'll enjoy a few refreshments afterwards in the lovely back yard at the Moore home on Fargo.
As always, our RPGG member events are free for RPGG members; $5 for guests. All are welcome.
