Lifestyle Artisan Michele Brown shares how a Naturally Creative Lifestyle can Remake Lives – Inside & Out. She invites you to gather around for a vibrant message filled with inspiring stories and ideas on how you can become creatively equipped in a life-giving way, and why it matters.

Michele Brown is an internationally recognized Lifestyle Artisan who creates, produces and hosts popular how-to lifestyle programs for television networks such as PBS, DIY NETWORK, HGTV, CW, and FOX.

Saturday – March 2 – 1:00 pm – “Underused Perennials- why they deserve a spot in your garden”

Nicole Jonas of Red Granite Farm will broaden your plant pallet by teaching you about perennials you have not been exposed to before. Designing your perennial border with a few structure plants and then filling in the gaps with plants that say “Wow” will give your landscape an ever-changing look with color and texture. Planting with all four seasons in mind keeps your garden interesting, even in the off-season, which can be long and cold here in Iowa. Great garden design doesn’t have to be difficult if you plant things that give you plenty of bang for your buck.
