Multnomah Master Gardeners Chapter holds several events throughout the year for and with our chapter members. This is your chance to get together with other local master gardeners and swap stories, plants materials, recipes, information and more. These events are for master gardeners, their families, and friends, unlike our speaker series which is always open to all.
Winter Greens Gathering, Tuesday,
TaborSpace, 5441 SE Belmont, 6:30pm (note early start)
Spend an evening with fellow Master Gardeners. Enjoy sweet treats, and warm beverages, while Chapter gurus and friends offer guidance in making your wreath, swag, centerpiece or other creative decorations. Note: crafting is optional. This is also a great evening just to come and socialize.
The Chapter will supply some greens, but we’d love to have cuttings from your garden to share, too:
- Evergreen boughs,
- incense cedar (a favorite!)
- rosemary (15” stems work well in wreaths)
- anything with berries (beauty berry, juniper, or nandina)
- interesting cones or seedpods, attractive textures, variegation, or bark.
You’ll need decorating supplies – wreath rings, baskets, vases, or other items that can be used to create a beautiful winter arrangement/wreath or swag. Please bring items for yourself or extras that you would like to share.
The Chapter will have wire, oasis, and some ribbon.
Bring your own pruners, wire cutters, gloves, containers for arrangements and ribbon.
