Smart Gardening Roadshow / Tustin

Greening the Garden... A Smart Gardener's Journey
AND Native Trees and Shrubs with Bling!

No need to travel to the "big city" to lear the latest information on gardening.  The Smart Gardening Roadshow is coming to northern Michigan.  

Educators Mary Wilson and Rebecca Finneran from Michigan State University Extension bring this fun, informative and exciting roadshow to Kettunen Center in Tustin, Michigan for a one night presentation.

Finneran will talk about Greening the Garden... A Smart Gardener's Journey -- with ideas for designing a garden that is both "green" and gorgeous using plants that are water smart, pest-free and low input.

Wilson's talk on Native Trees and Shrubs with Bling demonstrates that native plants are far from drab and boring.  She'll share some of her favorite species -- both native species and their cultivars -- for a bright,colorful garden in various seasons.

The cost of this event is $25 in advance or $35 at the door.  To register online visit this link or contact your local MSU Extension office.  For more information contact Marybeth Denton at (989) 539-7805 or email her at
