This series of workshops takes a broad view of what it means to garden. Whether you consider yourself a backyard gardener, a forager, a farmer, or a steward of the land, the Garden Series will have something for you. From formal garden design to identifying and learning to use wild growing plants, we span a range of techniques and philosophies. Because of the range of subjects covered, these classes can be enjoyed by new and experienced gardeners alike.

Courtney Joy Stevens of Courtney Joy Floral will teach you how to plan and grow a cut flower garden. From seeds, tubers, and bulbs to cutting armfuls of fresh blooms, she will give you the information you need to grow your own bouquets this summer. She’ll share tips on where to source the materials you need, useful tools, and the easiest cut flowers to grow in Southeastern Wisconsin. Bring your questions and then head home to start your very own cut flower garden.

About Stacey H. Lee

Stacey H. Lee is the author of Under a Painted Sky, Outrun the Moon, The Secret of a Heart Note, and the forthcoming The Downstairs Girl (August 2019). A fourth generation Chinese-American whose people came to California during the heydays of the cowboys, Lee believes she still has a bit of cowboy dust in her soul. A native of southern California, she graduated from UCLA then got her law degree at UC Davis King Hall. After practicing law in the Silicon Valley for several years, she finally took up the pen because she wanted the perks of being able to nap during the day, and it was easier than moving to Spain. She plays classical piano, raises children, and writes YA fiction. Please visit her website at www.staceyhlee.com.
