Create a relaxing desert garden

CAREFREE — Do you look out your window and think you live in a parched wasteland? Do you long to step out into an inviting space to relax and de-stress? 

On Saturday January 11, Carefree Desert Gardens will welcome horticulturist, Noelle Johnson, aka AZ Plant Lady, and writer of the popular garden blog “Ramblings from a Desert Garden.” Johnson has a degree in Urban Horticulture and is an instructor at Desert Botanical Garden, where she teaches popular online courses on desert gardening. She will share how to avoid and fix mistakes in the garden and give attendees her tried and true strategies for creating an enticing, long-lasting outdoor space. 

“Gardening in the desert isn’t hard, but it is different,” Johnson said. “We can create, grow and maintain a beautiful desert garden with little fuss.”

The program, which usually includes a plant raffle, will begin at 9:30 a.m. and run approximately until Noon in the Carefree Town Council Chambers located at 33 Easy Street and Nonchalant Avenue in Carefree.  A $5 or more donation is appreciated to support these programs

This is the first of four programs of the 2020 Carefree Desert Gardens seminar series. For more information, call (480) 488-3686.
