The Urban Gardener Lecture Series - 2015


Hampton Roads Community Foundation The Fred Heutte Center is pleased to continue its Urban Gardener Lecture Series for 2015. The series continues to be funded by a generous grant from the Hampton Roads Community Foundation.

The Hampton Roads Community Foundation is southeastern Virginia's largest grant and scholarship provider. Since its founding in 1950, the regional community foundation has provided more than $200 million in grants and scholarships to improve life in Southeastern Virginia.

We have gathered a variety of speakers who will provide expertise in different gardening-related fields. The series is geared for beginners and specialists. While the program is free for members of the Friends of Fred Heutte Foundation, the cost for non-members is $ 5.00 per person. Some lectures require the pre-payment of materials fees. All lectures will be held at the center.
