Plants are musical as well as beautiful! Make sound a goal in your planting plan and add the sense of sound into your garden experience. Think of plants as instruments with active plants whispering their songs of stems, leaves and pods shaking in the breeze. Other plants add the musicality of bird songs and the hum of insects by providing food or nesting sites. Learn about musical plants in this class, spending time outdoors in the Gardens, and indoors discussing the best ways to design for the highest musical impact. Instructor: Hilary Nichols, garden manager, SEEDS, Inc. Dates: 2 Tuesdays, Oct. 11 & 18, 6:30-9 p.m. Course meets for 2 sessions. Participant limit: 15. Qualifies for Home Horticulture Certificate elective credit (5 hours each).
