Fern Table Workshop
Louise Clarke
Horticulturist, Morris Arboretum

Join staff horticulturist Louise Clarke to make a naturalistic miniature garden that incorporates hardy, shade-loving ferns with moss, weathered wood, and other found objects from nature. A 12 inch square paver forms the table base which, when completed, can be installed on a pedestal in your garden or on a shady patio, doorstep, balcony, or similar area. Perfect for those with limited space, the fern table is designed for year-round outdoor display. Please wear work clothes; gardening gloves optional. Please bring a shallow container at least 14" x 14" to transport your creation home. This course meets at the Morris Arboretum’s Horticulture Center at Bloomfield Farm. Enter the Arboretum on the road opposite from the public garden entrance. Park in the parking lot and follow the signs to the Horticulture Center.

Pollinator Plants That Thrive in Delaware Valley
Howard Goldstein
Penn State Master Gardener

Invite pollinators into your garden by providing them with the food sources they need. In this class you will learn about perennials and shrubs that are great pollinator plants and grow in this area. The instructor will illustrate his lecture with examples from the Penn State Pollinator Garden in West Fairmount Park, where he has volunteered for the past five years. This garden, which requires little watering and has flowers from very early spring through November, is continually assessed for its effectiveness in attracting pollinators. Howard will show examples of some of the different insects that are common to this garden and that you might expect to see in your own garden.
