The Garden Coffee Break – Summer Gardening Series

Talk & Walk:  The Garden Coffeebreak

A Gardening Series

presented by
City Of Scottsbluff, Stormwater Department

     Join us for The Garden Coffeebreak.  Each month we’ll learn  an aspect of gardening from our featured speaker then see the concepts at work in one or more of the downtown gardens.     

     Wear walking shoes and pre-order your lunch at least two days ahead so your food will be ready upon arrival. We’ll spend 20-25 minutes in the restaurant for the presentation then walk to the gardens for the remainder of the program.  Eateries will be providing specials or special menus a week before the event for you to pre-order.  Meals  range from $5.00—$12.00 per meal.
