Landscape and Botanical Photography Workshop - Saturday, October 22nd 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Joining us on this photo walk will be Anna Timmerman, LSU Ag Center Assistant Extension Agent - Horticulture, Jefferson Parish, who will tell us all about the species of flora that surround us. Anna comes from a strong horticulture background, having worked in production agriculture, sustainable landscaping, historic garden restorations, and urban agricultural education.
