The Hoffman Center for the Arts Horticultural Arts Program is hosting a Wonder Garden Walk & Talk Wednesdays event, held every Wednesday, beginning on Sep. 11 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. Admission is $10.
Join Wonder Garden plant curator, Ketzel Levine, for a regularly scheduled Walk & Talk through the Hoffman Center’s botanical outdoor classroom, the Wonder Garden. Levine’s hour-long class is a chance for all manner of gardeners to discover unusual and underused plants that thrive on the North Coast. Each class will highlight different plants in the Wonder Garden.
While class size will be limited, participants can sign up for as many classes as they’d like.
The Horticultural Arts program celebrated botanical diversity and explores gardening as a form of creative expression. Launched in the fall of 2018, they offer both hands-on events and opportunities for exploring the life-affirming role planar play in our aesthetic, creative, and biological lives. The program’s crown jewel is the Wonder Garden at the Hoffman Center for the Arts.
Levine studied at the George Washington U School of Landscape Design. She began her own business, Hortus Landscaping, in 1991, and then later began a career writing about horticulture, botanizing, and lecturing for garden clubs, botanic gardens and arboretums. After moving to Portland, in 1996, she became the northwest regional correspondent for Horticulture Magazine and a contributing editor for The Oregonian.
