Aug 23, Philly: ENTER BOG MAN


From the pictured-above Lord Whimsy:

Just a quick announcement: I’ll be doing a bog garden workshop this Sunday, August 23rd at 2PM in historic Whitesbog Village. We’ll go over the needs of popular bog plants like Venus Flytraps, Pitcher Plants and Sundews (care sheets will be available), and I’ll do a rudimentary demonstration on how to build a small container garden for these plants.

I’ve also heard rumors that friend and bog man extraordinaire Bill Smith (of JAWS Ltd. and Rarefind fame) may be attending! The man has the largest and most diverse bog garden I’ve ever seen, so with luck we can look forward to Bill lending his own invaluable advice on how to care for these plants.

If you have a spare couple hours on Sunday, come on out. Hope to see you there!

A $5 donation is requested. Reserve by phone: 609.893.4646 or email:
