NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Stephen F. Austin State University's SFA Gardens will host a floral design workshop to share methods for creating artistic flower arrangements.

The event will run from 9 a.m. to noon March 9 in the Brundrett Conservation Education Building, Room 101, at the SFA Pineywoods Native Plant Center, located at 2900 Raguet St.
