There will be a raffle of a flowering tree, orchids and more, as well as an “ask the experts” table and a lecture series.

The first lecture is “Landscape Makeovers” at 1 p.m. by Pamela Crawford, a nationally known garden author and landscape architect, who will draw sketches of great ideas for your garden. Bring photos of an area of your yard that needs improvement.

Next is “Florida Friendly Landscaping” at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. by master gardeners Inger Jones and Mona Johnston. Learn how to incorporate Florida-friendly landscaping principles into your yard and get it certified as a Florida-friendly backyard habitat.

Finally, there is “Bee Understanding” from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. presented by beekeeper Al Salopek. Learn the important role honeybees play in the food supply chain.

Proceeds will benefit the Wellington Garden Club’s civic beautification, environmental and youth programs. For more information, visit
