Join us for a day of learning at TSD!  We will have three wonderful presenters teaching us about their sustainable fields.

When: June 12th, from noon to 5pm
Where: TS Designs (map)
Price: $30.00


We believe that successful small gardens are greater than the sum of their parts.  We have gathered three experts to share their insights, along with the work they have done at TS Designs, to demonstrate how this holistic, synergistic system works.

We have broken that day into two sessions.  Each speaker will be presenting during each session, so you’ll have the opportunity to hear two of the three.


12:00 to 1:00 – sign in and meet/greet
1:00 to 1:30
– introduction of the presenters
1:30 to 3:00 – first session
3:00 to 3:30 – break
3:30 to 5:00 – second session
5:00 – happy hour featuring local beer and wine
