Local garden designer, writer and Noozhawk columnist Joan S. Bolton will help teach "Write It, Shoot It: How to Create Videos for Blogs and Websites," a daylong workshop at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden on Saturday, Feb. 1.

Participants will learn how to tell stories through video, gain basic shooting and editing skills, then create a rough — or completed — two- to three-minute video featuring themselves in the botanic garden.

The event is presented by the Garden Writers Association, a national association composed of garden communications professionals. While membership in GWA is encouraged, the general public is welcome to attend. The techniques learned apply to anyone who's interested in creating videos for the internet.

Guided tours will follow at La Huerta Historic Gardens at the Santa Barbara Mission, Alice Keck Park Memorial Garden in the heart of Santa Barbara, Casa del Herrero in Montecito and the demonstration gardens at Seaside Gardens in Carpinteria.
