Melinda’s lecture and demonstration will include four floral designs using materials easily found on the grounds, in your gardens, and at local vegetable stands.  The elements and principles of design will be used to enhance understanding and practical application for your designs.  The designs wil be simple to master and fun to have on your porch or dining table.
