Berkshire Botanical Garden will lead a virtual workshop on Workhorse Plants and Design Tips for Time-Pressed and Maturing Gardeners.

She will offer easy-to-follow ideas for plants and and design tips for year-round gardens that will thrive with less work from their people, based on The Right-Size Flower Garden by Kerry Ann Mendez.

A hugely popular educator and communicator, in recent years she has presented over 400 lectures to more than 40,000 gardeners in 21 states.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
