Please join us for a peer learning session Wednesday, June 11 at the beautiful Portland Japanese Gardens. We will have a tour led by Heike Edossa, Gardener and an OLCP. Some topics highlighted will include: an organic fertilizer and traditional tool demo discussion, troubleshooting winter damage on plants, managing the garden's unique ground cover and how best to deal with dry shade and compacted soils under trees. We'll also look at the challenges of managing a public space with a 50 year history and looking ahead another 50 years.
