SJG Unit 86 Continuing Education Schedule 2018

by aleks (I'll put the cont. ed. schedule on the right margin of the blog shortly)

SJG • 3/28/18 - Rhododendron sutchuenense in Area F

        This year the Unit 86 Continuing Education Committee has prepared a menu of three books, four films, and five classes (one class off-site). More classes and field trips may be added as opportunities arise.

          All events will take place in the Tateuchi Community Room unless otherwise noted. The times on the schedule indicate the total number of hours we can use the room. You will receive a detailed introduction to each event a few weeks in advance, and the schedule may change a bit. 

SJG • 3/28/18 - Camellia japonica 'Takayama',  next to the newly constructed
beautiful bamboo fence - thank you, Gardeners!
