Gardening Workshop: Oh My Aching Back!

June 20, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

How to Keep Gardening as We Age

Martha Swiss
Garden Writer & Designer
Tuesday, June 20
6:00 to 7:30 p.m.

Gardening is great exercise, but it can become more difficult through the years. Aging knees and backs, and overall muscle loss make it harder to do the kind of gardening we once enjoyed. This talk will provide suggestions for making your garden less labor intensive while still providing joy and a beautiful setting for your home.

About the Presenter: Martha Swiss is a garden writer, designer, and speaker. She is a regular contributor to Pennsylvania Gardener magazine and the publications editor for the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden. Her articles have also appeared in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and Fine Gardening. She is a graduate of Chatham University’s landscape design program and a Penn State master gardener.

This workshop is free to PHLF Members. Non-members: $10. RSVPs are appreciated: or 412-471-5808 ext 527.
