—- AND
Sunday November 4, 2018    4:00pm  –  6:00pm
Two sessions each accommodating only 25 people
Both sessions will include a walking tour of the UWM Green Houses and a session on propagation and a walking tour of the UWM Academic Green House.
Since there are no seats in the greenhouses, all participants must be able to walk and stand for over an hour to attend these sessions.
Please wear appropriate footwear for walking on damp floors.
Once of the most rewarding aspects of gardening is ‘creating’ additional plants to share with others.  Join this interactive, hands-on workshop and learn how to successfully asexually  propagate some of your favorite plants at home.  Following the discussion, tour the greenhouse and take home a few plants.
