Janet Macunovich: Getting More Mileage from Your Garden

Gardeners love their gardens, but could they enjoy them more? Garden designer and author Janet Macunovich thinks the answer is “yes” in every case. There are always more layers of wonder and delight awaiting the gardener who digs a bit deeper with trowel, notebook, index and internet. Join Ann Arbor Farm & Garden and Janet on February 11th via Zoom for a fun hour of history, folklore, science and magic unearthed from a garden.

This is a brand new topic for Janet, presented for the first time with AAFG and open to the public via Zoom virtual presentation. Registration is required. Admission fee for non-members is $10 per person. Once you make your purchase, you will receive a confirmation email. This email will be your receipt for the February 11th Zoom program.  You will receive a reminder email in early February with the Zoom link to the program.

Janet Macunovich is a professional gardener, author and educator who has been designing, planting and maintaining gardens and landscapes for nearly 40 years. Janet's horticultural training includes extensive coursework at botanical gardens and colleges. Since 1989 she has authored nine books, developed and presented seminars and workshops, hosted radio shows and written weekly gardening columns that have helped gardeners in the U.S., Canada, England, Europe and Brazil. She is recognized for her no-nonsense practicality, humor and ability to take the mystery out of gardening topics. She is co-founder of the Michigan School of Gardening (1996-2008) and the Association of Professional Gardeners.

Janet is co-owner with husband Steven Nikkila of Garden A to Z, a garden and landscape design and maintenance firm with clients in Michigan and several other States. They're also the parents of two children, for whom Steven put his career on hold in 1981 to be full-time parent. At that time, Janet began moonlighting in gardening to help make ends meet and to pursue her passion. By 1984 the two were gardening together professionally, each with a child riding on their back. Since that time, gardening and garden education has been their full-time occupation.

Proceeds from this program will directly benefit AAF&G's grant and scholarship fund. To learn more, visit our website at: http://www.annarborfarmandgarden.org/
