Lecture/Seminar: DIY Moss Gardening: Basics and Beyond

Product Description

In response to numerous requests to offer moss gardening lectures to WNC moss lovers, Mossin' Annie is hosting a Winter Lecture Series at Mountain Moss' Mossery in Brevard, NC.  This Saturday Seminar on February 15, 2020, entitled DIY Moss Gardening: Basics and Beyond, will provide an overview of important considerations for aspiring DIY moss gardeners. Lecture content will include inspirational photos and project ideas along with valuable how-to tips to achieve success.

Experiential learning for participants includes taking a closer look at various moss species -- shade, sun and versatile mosses -- appropriate for all types of moss landscape projects. Attendees will use close-up lenses (jeweler's loupes) to view botanical characteristics of each moss species. Each person will be provided with moss specimens for the creation of your own Moss ID reference herbarium collection (scientific paper packets or gardener baggies). While in the Mossery, a hands-on opportunity will be provided to experience various planting methods.

Note: The Moss ID portion is geared towards gardeners, not botanists. Microscopes will not be available for keying out moss species. Please bring your own loupe, if possible.

Registration is limited. Purchase your ticket(s) early to guarantee your spot. Cost: $35 per person. All ages welcome but this particular event will be geared towards adults. Program will be held at Mossery: 100 Elks Club Rd, Brevard, NC 28712

Moss for Sale: All participants will receive 10% discount off moss trays.

Books for Sale: Mossin' Annie will be available to autograph her book, The Magical World of Moss Gardening. 

Special ID Opportunity: Want to know what moss species that you have growing in your own garden? Bring samples to identify. Also, participants are encouraged to bring their own close-up lens (jeweler's loupe). 

Wheelchair Accessibility: The majority of the lecture will be held indoors in the Elk Haven Wellness Center community room. It is wheel-chair accessible. Seating will be typical stacking chairs (not folding chairs). This portion of my program will last about an hour. Then we will move outside to my actual Mossery which is on the back side of the paved parking lot. The group will tour the Mossery which does have walking hazards -- exposed water hoses, gravel, uneven ground, etc. There are outdoor Adirondack-style chairs available. Bring your own camping chair if you wish.
