Event Description

One of RBG’s Courses & Workshops

The non-living structures in a garden can be as important as the plants themselves. In ‘Garden Bones’ we will discuss, draw, and learn to incorporate different built elements such as tuteurs, arbours, gabions, pergolas, sculpture and more, to add privacy, scale, and year-round interest.

Presented in partnership with Mohawk College. Led by Candy Venning.

This program will be held virtually on Zoom. 

Fee: $99 for 2 sessions + Service Fee (Members 10% off*)
Please pre-register by March 6**

With over 20 years of hands-on experience in the green industry, Candy has focused on sustainable garden design and project management. Her passion for nature is reflected in her work, from creating early green roof systems to teaching about, planning and overseeing the installation of elegant residential gardens. An advocate for community engagement, Candy worked with residents and the City of Hamilton to design and build the Sunset Cultural Garden, receiving  the 2018 Betty Blashill Environmental Prize for her efforts. Candy and her husband own Venni Gardens, a landscape, maintenance and garden design business.
