Event For Kids Planned At The Japanese Garden

By The Spokesman-Review
 

FOR THE RECORD: April 6, 1996 CORRECTION: The Spokane County/WSU Cooperative Extension workshop “Gardening In Spite of It All” will be April 18. The date listed in Friday’s IN Life section was wrong.

It’s not too early to register for Children’s Day at the Japanese Garden. The event, which is really for families but geared toward kids, will be May 4, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Manito Park Japanese Garden.

There will be storytelling, music, origami, a sand garden and art. It’s sponsored by the Friends of Manito. While registration isn’t required, it’s encouraged so there are enough supplies for everyone. Call 456-8038.

Roses, roses, roses

So many gardeners were interested in the Flower Carpet roses when they were introduced last August that demand exceeded the supply almost immediately. The roses are again available at more than 7,000 retailers across the country. To locate the one nearest you, call (800) 580-5930.

Gardening anyway

The Yard and Garden Lecture Series sponsored by the Spokane County/WSU Cooperative Extension continues Thursday with “Gardening In Spite of It All.” The workshop focuses on gardening skills for those with physical limitations. It’s $5 at the door, and the program runs from 7 to 9 p.m. at the extension office, 222 N. Havana. Arrive early to secure a seat.
