Martha Swiss

  • Plants for Pollinators-Looking to improve your garden’s habitat for bees, butterflies, and other pollinators? This class profiles beautiful perennials, annuals, shrubs, and trees they especially adore and will help you learn which are best suited to your garden’s growing conditions. We’ll also discuss ways you can make your garden more enticing to pollinators and birds, and how to have your property certified as a wildlife habitat.
  • Annual Flower Power-Long-lived perennials are great in the garden, but their flowers come and go. Adding annuals bridges those blooming gaps and brings megawatt flower power to your garden. Some even bloom from spring to frost. We’ll discuss some of the most floriferous annuals to look for, including new varieties and tried-and-true, old-fashioned favorites. We’ll cover how to place annuals for maximum effect and how to include annuals if you are on a budget. Ideas for combining annuals and container plantings will also be covered.

Martha Swiss is a garden writer and designer based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She is a regular contributor to Pennsylvania Gardener Magazine and her articles have also appeared in The American Gardener, GROW (the magazine of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society), Fine Gardening, Pittsburgh Magazine, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and publications of the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden.

A graduate of Chatham University’s landscape design program and a master gardener, Martha helps clients envision landscapes for their properties that are useful and easy to care for, while at the same time providing beauty and support for pollinators, birds, and other wildlife.

Martha teaches classes on a range of topics and is especially interested in trees and shrubs, native plants, edible gardening, pruning, and garden design. She tends a one-acre garden that has been photographed for Organic Gardening, The Cottage Journal, Hobby Farms Magazine, and Pennsylvania Gardener Magazine.

She blogs at plantsomejoy.com.

Susan Marquesen

  • Preserving Your Harvest-Correctly preserving herbs, fruits, and vegetables for later use is an exceptional way to save money and to serve delicious and healthy foods all year long. Preserving is easy, fun and satisfying. Learn the basics of three different food preservation processes: canning (hot water bath and pressure canning), drying and freezing.
  • Building Closed Terrariums-Closed terrariums can add a wonderful design element to almost any room in your home. They are mostly airtight and, once built, require minimum maintenance. This presentation will take you through the process of building a closed terrarium. All necessary components will be discussed including the choice of appropriate containers, soil, amendments, plants, and non-plant materials. Design considerations are important and numerous designs will be shown.

Susan Marquesen has been gardening and preserving foods for as long as she can remember. As a child she helped her parents preserve from their garden in Iowa, and as an adult she carried on the tradition with her own children in California and Pennsylvania. Now tending a suburban garden of fruit trees, small fruit, herbs, and vegetables, Susan enjoys sharing her knowledge of both gardening and the preserving process. She has been teaching classes on these topics for more than 15 years.
