Ergonomic gardening to be discussed at Saturday Floretum workshop

The Edmonds Floretum Garden Club will host the third in a series of Saturday workshops this Saturday, March 9, from 10 a.m. until noon. Jeanette Moyer, owner/operator of Welcoming Gardens, will speak on “Ergonomic Design Considerations Enabling Work in the Home Garden.”

A certified professional horticulturist who holds a degree in environmental horticulture, Moyer has learned firsthand how to accommodate her disabilities so that she can continue to enjoy gardening, and she makes this a focus of her landscape design and fine gardening business. In fall 2010, her article, “Designing a Welcoming Garden for the Disabled,” was featured in the Washington State Nursery and Landscape Association’s B & B publication.

Saturday’s discussion will revolve around how to work in the garden as physical conditions change and age becomes an issue. She will offer hints to help the gardener work smarter instead of harder. In addition, Moyer will share some highlights from her experience as an exhibitor this year at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show.

The presentation will be in the meeting room of Coldwell Banker Bain, 108 5th Ave. S., in Edmonds. All are welcome. A donation of $2 is suggested. For more information call Janice Noe at 425-774-4991 or email janicenoe@comcast.net.
