Brewin’ Hope Coffeehouse, 215 S. Locust St., Pana, IL 62557
Oct 18, 2023   2:00 - 3:00 pm  

Throughout history, special gardens have been created with engaging sights, touch, textures, and tactile experiences. Sensory gardens are areas designed to stimulate one or more of the five senses: sight, smell, sound, taste, and touch. They entice a visitor to view plants at close range, to reach out and touch, to inhale a fragrance, to listen, and to actively experience the garden with all their senses. Sensory Gardens are for everyone!

Horticulture Educator Andrew Holsinger will show how any garden can become a Sensory Garden with a bit of creativity and imagination. You will even learn about the Sensory Garden installed in Pana with the help of the Christian County Master Gardeners. 

This program is free. Register by Oct 16.
