The SFA Gardens will host a garden seminar “Deck the Halls—Using Evergreens to Decorate for the Holidays” on December 6 from 9 a.m.-noon in the Ina Brundrett Conservation Education Building at the SFA Pineywoods Native Plant Center, 2900 Raguet Street, Nacogdoches.

Evergreen branches and garlands once served as symbols of enduring life and a fruitful year to come. Join Dawn Stover, Research Associate at the SFA Mast Arboretum, to learn how to create elegant wreaths and garlands using materials from the garden. Participants will learn principles of wreath, garland, and centerpiece construction and make a wreath to enjoy at home for the holidays. In addition to the traditional wreaths and garlands, Dawn will be introducing new crafts using natural items from the garden and forest. All materials will be provided.

Class size is limited, so please register in advance for this wonderful holiday seminar. To register or for more information, call 936-468-1832 or email [email protected]. Cost is $25 for SFA Garden members and $30 for non-members.
