It’s not required, but students are encouraged to bring a craft glue gun, gloves, clippers (not scissors), a craft apron, and a small tarp or liner to protect their vehicle.


Instructors Biographies:

Cheryl Tyler of TerraFlora designs green walls, vertical gardens with living plants, and moss-scapes using preserved moss and other organic materials. She is grateful that she gets to work with plants and people and believes that bringing nature inside is not only good for the interior environment, but good for the soul. You can contact her with questions or to set up a visit to her Brunswick studio at www.terrafloramaine.com.

Jen Dunlap is a Horticulture Program Manager at the Gardens, whose designs and horticulture practices are centered on ecological principles. such as the gardens she designed Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, including the front entrance gardens of the visitor center and the pond gardens. In the Alfond Children’s Garden, Jen designs and manages the garden beds’ plant selection as well as the container gardens and vertical gardens that are rich with color, texture, and forms. Raising two young children alongside a bountiful herb and vegetable garden, Jen finds the balance between organized chaos and small muddy footprints.
