Workshops/ Sign Ups

In Bloom

Q. I am coaching for ‘In Bloom’. I attended your presentation on Thursday and you mentioned the two workshops that will be held at Matthaei for the event. I called Matthaei today and they said that those events are not advertised publicly and they are coordinated through the WESO organizers. They told me to let you know if we are interested in attending the event and they then will let schools know when they are. So I thought I would email you to see how this has been done in the past and from whom would I get this information from as to when the workshops are. Thank you very much for your help with this.

A. Yes, there will be workshops at Matthaei and you will be able to sign up on line, through WESO, not the Botanical Gardens. We will post those dates soon.
