A Garden of Words—Journaling Your Garden and Creative Garden Writing


Helen Yoest, Garden Writer

A writing course to gain inspiration for writing about your garden, botanical gardens, and arboreta. Let Helen ignite your inner creative juices to give your garden a description it deserves. Don 't think you 're creative? Think again; Helen can help you find it. This course also includes homework to write 300 words about one of the Arboretum 's beds. The following week or sometime thereafter, Helen will review your work and give pointers on how to enhance it, if necessary!
