On Thursday, April 22, Camden Garden Club will welcome Master Gardener Linda Redman to the American Legion parking lot, 91 Pearl Street in Camden for a presentation entitled “Twigs and Things” beginning at 9:30 a.m. The talk is free and open to the public and everyone attending will be required to wear a face mask and observe social distancing. There is no seating available so attendees should also bring a chair.
Linda Redman hails from Bucksport and graduated from the University of Maine, Farmington. She is an educator, avid gardener and photographer, and lover of the outdoors. While volunteering at Brae Maple Farm in Union she learned the art of making twig fences from Master Gardener Sam Harris. She expanded that experience by using twigs, not only for garden creations, but for other uses in the home.
The presentation will cover tools required, varieties of twig materials and basic construction techniques. Redman will demonstrate how to turn bare branches into garden architectural features such as gates, fences, trellises and arbors.
