Garden Club Visits Urban Garden Oasis

Members of the Simpsonville Garden Club enjoyed a Night Out on Greenville’s trendy Augusta Road on February 20th. Following dinner at Zoe’s Kitchen, the club was treated to a Seasonal Table Display Demonstration and Workshop at Roots, an Urban Garden Oasis.

Wesley Turner, owner of Roots, provided the workshop, creating a delightful Easter dish garden. Mr. Turner’s work has been featured on HGTV’s We Bought the Farm which aired in June of 2017.

Afterwards attendees had fun crafting their own garden creations. Selecting from Root’s array of eclectic garden containers and collection of houseplants, the gardeners created holiday displays to decorate their homes.

The Simpsonville Garden Club meets at 1:00 PM the third Tuesday of every month at the Simpsonville Rotary Hall’s new location, 205 North Maple Street.
