Was held Saturday, March 11, 2023
More than 250 garden-loving folks descended upon Oklahoma City University’s Meinders School of Business for the 2023 Oklahoma Gardening School. Our theme? BIRDS AND BLOOMS: Sustainable Gardening for Attracting and Supporting Birds, Bees, and Other Wildlife! It was well received by all who were there. Mark your calendars because we’ll be back next March with a whole new horticultural presentation!
