Edgewood Communities is hosting a free Best of Times seminar titled “Garden Art, From Rust to Riches” at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 14  in the Lutheran Chapel, 715 Falconer St., Jamestown.

Please reserve a seat by calling 720-9122.

Patty Eckwahl, director of marketing for Lutheran and a Master Gardener, will present a lively program on enhancing gardens with clever garden art, while focused on the principles of good design.

“Garden art is not unlike decorating our homes,” Eckwahl said. “My personal garden style is rustic – the rustier the better! Each of us has a unique style and personal preferences. Using photos and storytelling, I’ll present the key principles of good design that can be incorporated into any garden style.”

In addition, the Chautauqua County Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners will have interesting garden art items for sale at reasonable prices.

“This will be a fun evening,” said Betty Barnes, Master Gardener and coordinator of the sale table. “We’ve combined education with shopping. And all the proceeds will help us continue our mission of educating the community on all aspects of gardening.”

For more information about the seminar or Lutheran Housing, call Eckwahl at 720-9122.

The Best of Times Seminar Series was honored by both the state and the national LeadingAge associations with the “Innovation of the Year” and “Public Trust” awards. The seminar program is recognized for bringing education to the community on ways to plan well to age well.
