OHS Monthly Seminar:
Tuesday, May 26th at 7:00 p.m. at the Agricultural Resource Center at OSU-OKC, Kimberly Toscano presents "Gardens of Oklahoma" Oklahoma has an incredibly diverse climate and ecology, and the gardens throughout the state reflect this diversity. Join Kim Toscano as she walks through an assemblage of public and private Oklahoma gardens. With an eye on design, she will explore the relationships between place and plants. Local botanic gardens and arboreta are excellent places to experience this relationship and learn from the knowledge of professionals. Home gardens are also great sources of inspiration, bringing the elegance and breadth of public gardens down to a more familiar, backyard scale. And of course, private gardens are full of personality, an important component of any landscape. Let your creative mind wander as Kim brings you on a virtual tour of gardening in Oklahoma through photos and video.
