Brookgreen in the Spring
Brookgreen Gardens is in full bloom this time of year and is absolutely gorgeous. The Brookgreen in Bloom program is running through the entire month of April and offers something for everyone. The program runs in the evenings from 5:30 to 6:30 daily.
Topics included in the program are Hortisculpture, gardening techniques you can use at home, and garden photography. You can also walk through the garden with a Tidelands Healthpoint Trainer.
