Grow old-fashioned camellias like Eudora Welty! At this outdoor workshop with Paige Mizell, a small group of adults will learn how to find, cultivate, and propagate Welty's favorite flowers—and discover their history, too. As door prizes, a handful of heirloom camellias like the ones Eudora Welty grew will be given away, just in time for fall planting! This event will take place in the Welty garden and historic garage from 4 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, October 7. $20 per person. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
