SGVBG Will Hold Second Saturday Workshop

St. George Village Botanical Garden's Second Saturday program presents "Making Fiber from Plants" from 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, July 11, in the Bodine Visitors' Center.
Many different plants around the world provide fibers that humans have long used for a variety of purposes from weaving cloth to weaving baskets. In this workshop, learn about plants that provide fibers, visit the fiber garden, then don goggles and aprons to experiment with different types of plants to find out whether local plants contain useful fibers. This activity will get messy, so wear old clothes.
. Reservations are essential as the number of participants is limited; call 692-2874 to sign up. There is a $5 per person fee for the workshop. Children ages 6 and older are invited and must be accompanied by an adult.
