City-sized gardens, high-density urban housing, precious few hours for leisure—and even fewer for slaving in the garden—you have to be a master of invention or mistress of ingenuity when it comes to fitting a garden into a busy 21st century life.  Today’s savvy gardeners are creating small gardens with big impact that enhance our lives and still allow time for relaxing.

Don’t miss Lorene Edwards Forkner’s lively talk on September 16, hosted by Arboretum Foundation Unit 69. Learn how to make the most of your small urban garden space while helping support the Arboretum!
