Presentation

The Recycled or Repurposed Garden

Frank Kershaw
Frank Kershaw will have you giving a second look to yard sales after this presentation. You will be amazed at the many creative ways gardeners have added whimsy, interest and uniqueness to their garden with recycled items. This talk will feature many gardens throughout North America that have incorporated what might have been thrown away items and transformed them into new and endearing garden artifacts.
