Back by popular demand, gardening expert, TV/radio host, author and columnist Melinda Myers will partner for a third year with the Friends of Boerner Botanical Gardens to present a brand news series of garden walks in 2012. The “Discover Hidden Treasures” series will consist of in-depth garden walks that will take place January - October. 

Myers will take people on an exploration through the gardens to discover both new and old areas & plantings where she'll unveil hidden treasures and provide creative ideas and concepts the attendees can apply right
to their own landscapes.  Myers will share her knowledge and expertise and answer questions along the way.

Proceeds from the garden walks support Children’s Plant Science and Environmental Education at Boerner Botanical Gardens.
