Discover the surprising usefulness of petals and leaves, roots, seeds and fruit in this excellent and eye-opening workshop with Stefani Bittner and Alethea Harampolisowners of the Bay Area landscape design firm Homestead Design Collective and authors of the new book
"Harvest: Unexpected Projects Using Extraordinary Garden Plants”
Saturday, April 8 at 11:00 am – Day 1 of our Spring Extravaganza!

Movers and shakers in the edibles and floral-design worlds, Stefani and Alethea use many of Annie's plants in their gardens and are experts in growing them beautifully!

They believe every garden – not just vegetable plots – can produce a multi-purpose harvest over all four seasons. Their beautifully photographed guide gives step-by-step instructions on how to do fun, unexpected projects with the resulting bounty– from balms and salves to teas, floral arrangements, vinegars, beauty scrubs and more.

Join us as they demonstrate some of their favorite projects from the book – and meet some of their favorite plants, too! We'll have a book signing after the talk and will raffle off signed books at our SPRING PARTY MEGA RAFFLE!
