1 pm Garden Club Meeting

Location: First Baptist Church, 424 Wallace Avenue, Coeur d’Alene

Tyler Beasley is surrounded by horticulture in his everyday life. As the Greenhouse Manager at Spokane Community College, he has been growing greenhouse crops for the past 10 years and is currently finishing up his B.S. in Horticulture through Oregon State University. Tyler will discuss the differences and similarities of horticulture as a career compared to that of being a gardener. A father of two and a husband of a wife that supports his obsessions, Tyler will also talk about his experiences with many non-traditional ornamental plants he grows in his home garden in Spokane with the challenge of limited space and choosing plants that stand up to children and a large dog. Come and hear this (dare we say it?) budding horticulturalist on the rise in our community! 

To be announced!
