Winner Announced for Tickets to Vertical Garden Lecture

Congratulations to Cinta Burgos!  Her entry to a recent City Garden Ideas post has earned her two tickets to the April 24th Vertical Gardening lecture by Patrick Blanc at the Museum of Fine Arts.
Tickets are still available for this lecture by Mr. Blanc, considered the inventor of the vertical garden.  I encourage interested gardeners to attend.

Congratulations Cinta!  Email me at janine@citygardenideas.com with your address and I’ll send your tickets along.  See you at the lecture!
