|A Good Time Doing Good!|
Douglas County Master Gardeners are presenting an outdoor workshop to educate about the invasive problem of Bush Honeysuckle, Lonicera maackii, and build a unique table made from honeysuckle limbs to take home.
We’d like to invite Friends of HV and volunteers to register and join us
Saturday, March 26 , from 9am to 3pm, at Lawrence Hidden Valley Camp.
We are delighted to bring Dale Dufer and Jean Ponzi to Lawrence to present this workshop. Dale is an artist who works with natural materials. His wife Jean is Green Resource Manager for Missouri Botanical Gardens, in St Louis.

During the morning session we’ll be learning about honeysuckle and harvesting limbs to use in the construction workshop, to be held in the afternoon session.
Morning refreshments will be provided, please bring your own brown bag lunch.
Cost of the workshop is $30, and includes “three legger branches”, materials and screws, and use of tools. Participants are encouraged to bring gloves, and loppers if available. Other tools will be provided. We will be working in the woods, cabin, and Southern Shade shelter, and plan to hold the workshop rain or shine.
As always, dress for HV, and please park in the lot by Evelyn’s Attic.
Registration is limited to 16 participants. Sign up will be available at the February and March monthly meetings.

The workshop will provide 3 hours of Advanced Education, and 2.5 hours of Volunteer time.
