LECTURE: “The Art of Plant Placement” with Eric Sternfels

Garden making can become a conscious art form when we try to understand how the human eye processes input. Only then can we be deliberate in our choices when locating plants with intentional goals. We can better create moods, define spaces, loosen or sharpen our focus when we select and locate plants of the right visual character. Learn how to use plantings, not just the man-made edges and surfaces to order your landscape. We will discuss geometry, patterns, and composition to bring an artistic perspective to re-ordering an existing garden or to begin a new one.

This open air class will take place unless weather conditions are severe. Bring umbrellas if need be for light rain. Registrants will be notified by e-mail in the event of a cancellation in the early AM.
