Gardens of Inspiration - What inspires people to garden and create something beautiful

How does a garden grow? With city gardens, the answer is with ingenuity. We are all unique with different needs and visions of what our ideal garden will look like. What a "small" garden means to one person may be vast space to another. Our perspective of space is often relative to our previous experiences. If we have lived on an acre and move to a quarter acre block, we may think we now only have a 'small' garden to maintain! If we have only ever had an indoor plant and now have a courtyard, a new garden is full of possibilities. Gardens of inspiration is a theme we are working with this year.

Cost:  Free for members, and non-members are always welcome but are asked to pay $10
