Learn the language of plants and flowers

Almost all plants have a meaning, and this can be used to effectively enhance, design, or revitalize one's garden.

The Tri-Pond Park Nature Center in Peace Dale will host a class on Wednesday, May 7, from 1:30 to 3 p.m. that explores this symbolic language, with origins dating back to ancient Asian and older European cultures.

Participants will design their own vegetative style arrangement, using symbolic flowers and other plant materials to create a personal message.

Those ages 14 and older are invited to attend. Advance registration is required. The cost is $18 for residents of South Kingstown and $23 for non-residents. For more information, call South Kingstown Parks and Recreation at 789-9301.
