Do you have a dog who is an escape artist?  A digger?  Is he lounging in the water feature or chewing up the deck?  Barking too aggressively at the fence and annoying the neighbors?  Ever wonder why the pooch is doing these things and what you can do about it?  Come to this class and learn things you might never have realized about your beloved pup, and get ideas on how to reduce these behaviors through a few garden adjustments or additions.  Lawn spots?  We will cover that too, as well as toxic plants and dangerous items your pet may get into.  Linda Brennen, of Canine Coach, will be co-teaching this class with Pat Sullivan of Smart Garden Design.  Linda is a certified professional dog trainer who really understands dog behavior and can clue you in on why your dog does those crazy things that drive you mad.  This is a great chance to talk with a dog trainer or a garden designer with your questions.  Come on out–you can’t ask questions on YouTube!

Pat Sullivan has a degree in Horticulture from Texas A&M and has been in the horticulture field for more than thirty years.  She enjoys giving seminars on landscape design and plant science, hoping to help you solve your garden dilemmas in a beautiful way.

April 11 – 10:00-1:00 p.m. – “Yes You Can: Veggie Gardening Success: Come learn the ABCs of Vegetable Gardening…”

March 22, 2015

The April 11th Spring Lecture Series of the Horticultural Art Society is being held at the Carriage Room at Penrose House, 1661 Mesa Ave, Colorado Springs, CO 80906, starting at 10 am. A garden tour of the beautiful grounds of the former home of El Pomar founders Spencer and Julie Penrose, will follow the lecture.

The Lecture will be “Yes You Can: Veggie Gardening Success: Come learn the ABCs of vegetable gardening, plus some special tips and techniques that will help you succeed in our challenging area. ” Planning and persistence will pay off when you go out to harvest your own veggies! Lecturer Leslie Holzmann has been growing plants since she was a toddler, a very long time ago. The lessons learned from over 20 years of successes and failures in her Black Forest vegetable garden, added to the knowledge gained during an eleven year stint as a volunteer Colorado Master Gardener, enable her to offer proven advice to help you succeed in growing your own food here in the Pikes Peak region.

This event will be free to HAS members AND to the general public. PLEASE NOTE: Please pre-register (seating is limited) at hasgardens@gmail.com or by phone (719)357-9427.

We are always delighted to see everyone at this event.  We take great pride in offering an event at this lovely conference center each year.  If you have any questions, please call or email us at the above address and phone.

Wednesday, September 15, 2010, 7:00 p.m., “Bats!”

September 3, 2010

bat_csu.jpgPresented by Carol Ann Freeman

The State Mined Lands and Reclamation Division deals with Colorado’s 10,000 disused mines, looking for hazardous conditions – and finding them! Inspectors found bats roosting in some of the mines, and Carol Ann Freeman and her husband Nick Wilson were among the volunteers who for the past 15 years have kept track of which mines are bat habitats. The program (now defunded) was called B/IMP, Bats in Active Mines Program. Carol Ann is a member of HAS, and we are so pleased when one of our members is involved in such an interesting project and is willing to talk to us about it. Come learn about those wonderful and mysterious creatures, the bats of Colorado.

Free to all at the East Library, 5550 E. Union Blvd.
