The Photo-Graphic Garden: Mastering the Art of Digital Garden Photography
with Matthew Benson, Award-Winning Photographer
Thursday, September 19, 2019, 7 p.m.

That’s all about to change with the CT Hort 2019-20 Speaker Season opener – professional photographer and national speaker Matthew Benson.
Matthew is offering a 2+ hour hands-on workshop the next day (9/20) at 9 a.m. that begins with a photography session in Elizabeth Park and ends with pointers on editing your photos. Bring your camera or smartphone. Please register in advance if you are interested in attending.
