<quoted text>I agree. Looking at the website most of the classes they offer cost $50 per person for members. That's more than the annual membership dues! Where are the member benefits, because a $10 discount on a class isn't much help to the average person in today's world. Now is the time the gardens should be lowering prices and reaching out rather than the opposite. I'm wondering if the problem is the management team or the board of directors or both? Sad, it could be really awesome.
The garden is overpriced.

Nothing too see here folks. Move along now and keep your $12 in your pocket. No use in throwing good money away for nothing. Nothing to see here.

Wasted days complaining about something that isn't going to change. The vision died with the benefactor and current management's going to handle things the American Way. Meaning doing nothing to rock the boat and drawing every last pay check they can until it collapses. It's the way the modern world works. There's no pride in a job well done anymore. That concept died some time ago. Failure and success both pay the same and one is far easier on one's back. Beer cans and weeds in the flowers, indeed. A more serious problem is the rot at the top that tolerates these things.
