Event Description

Parks and garden volunteers are invited to discuss books and ideas about gardening, plants, nature and the environment. This reading group is a partnership between Olbrich Botanical Gardens, Steenbock Library, the UW Arboretum and Schumacher Farm County Park.

The theme for our 2022 winter series is Dreams and Designs: Gardening in Harmony with the Environment. We will be discussing plant selection, garden design, wildlife management and sustainable gardening practices. All discussions are free and participants are encouraged to read at least one of the selected books prior to the discussion. Books are available at Olbrich's Schumacher Library, partner libraries, and the Madison Public Library system.
