Garden Renovation for a Changing Climate: Transforming Your Yard into a Beautiful, Resilient and Eco-Friendly Garden

Myriad Botanical Gardens’ annual Oklahoma Gardening School is the state’s premier annual horticultural symposium designed for home gardeners and professional horticulturists, garden designers and landscape architects. Each year the Oklahoma Gardening School showcases local and national experts in gardening, plant selection, and garden design. Their illustrated talks and Q&A discussions help participants learn how to create and maintain more sustainable gardens in Oklahoma.

Speakers will inspire for the 2020 theme of Garden Renovation for a Changing Climate: Transforming Your Yard into a Beautiful, Resilient and Eco-Friendly Garden by demonstrating how best to convert Oklahoma lawns into gorgeous, hardy and sustainable gardens.
