‘It’s for the Birds’ offered

The Miami County Master Gardener Volunteers will hold a workshop on “It’s for the Birds” at the next session in the Coffee with the Master Gardeners series on Dec. 2 at 10 a.m.

The session will detail step—by—step instructions on how to construct holiday arrangements and each participant will create their own centerpiece. Organizers will cover the basic design principles and learn how to “shop” your own garden for free materials. Wiring and bow creation will also be covered.

The session is limited to 25 participants and will be held at the Monroe Township Meeting Hall in the lower floor at 4 E. Main St., Tipp City. The cost is $15 and pre—registration is required by Nov. 23.
