May 25 Peony Varieties and their Care “Work to Learn” Party

Terrace Garden at Carrie Blake Community Park near the band shell
On Saturday, May 25 at 1:00 PM, the Sequim Botanical Garden Society invites you to their “Work to Learn” Party demonstration with Jean Pier, the former Society president, and designer of the peony bed at the Terrace Garden, will talk on Peony Varieties and their Care. Jean who is a former Master Gardener, has a PhD in Geochemistry from Washington U. in St Louis, and worked for Jacobs Engineering to address contaminant transportation in groundwater at Superfund sites. Formerly from St. Louis, MO, Jean has lived in Sequim for 20 years, and she has been involved with the Terrace Garden development for over 10 years. You will learn about the varieties of peonies and growing healthy peony plants that thrive and bloom from May through June.

As a special offer, peony plants will be available, each for a $10 donation to the Society. You are encouraged to work alongside the garden volunteers caring for the peony bed. If you do not have time to help, you are welcome to come to the Sequim Botanical Garden at Carrie Blake Community Park near the James Band Shell to observe the activity, and see the significant renovation that is underway for the Terrace Garden. Look for yellow signs and women in yellow coats, you will find the parking near the water reuse area is the closest to the Terrace Garden.
