Participants registered for five classes from more than 70 choices and ate lunch on-site.

Sessions included garden tool maintenance, critter control, environmental gardening tips, new perennials for 2020, growing miniature hostas, seed starting and many others.

Some participants tried their hand at making toad houses and designing glass and pottery garden art, among other hands-on sessions.
