Come join us at the Conservatory this winter, and get a tour of the Conservatory that’s especially designed to spot “houseplants gone wild.” Then come back to the classroom to learn some tricks on how to be a better houseplant owner. Presented by the Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance and Master Gardener Dick Kress. Registration not required.
