Marais des Cygnes Extension Master Gardener Lenora Larson will be presenting a class called “Gardening to New Heights — Vines” at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 21, at the Extension office located at 104 S. Brayman St. in Paola.

Larson is well known for her expertise in both gardening and host plants for pollinators and butterflies. She has a degree in microbiology from Michigan State University, contributes monthly to the “Kansas City Gardener” and is a frequent presenter to gardening groups, according to a news release.

“By understanding how vines grow and by choosing appropriate garden structures, you can tame these rampant beasts into beautiful ‘vertical elements’ that will enhance your garden’s design,” Larson said.
