West Bend, WI – Join Washington County Master Gardener Rochelle Pennington for a walk through nature—along garden paths and forest floors—as she leads her audience into the lands of the wider world. The author will be sharing observations and poetry from some of the world’s most remembered nature writers—John Muir, Emily Dickinson, Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and others.
She will reveal many mysteries that surround us daily in this world of wonders. Come learn about theme gardens—moon, Biblical, animal, and gourd—and about historical gardens as well—Thomas Jefferson’s, George Washington’s, Empress Josephine’s.
Audience members will even take a closer look at slugs and crickets and beetles and bees and bats and ants and “skeets.” There is a whole lot of information in this entertaining program.
