Gardens That Work: More than just another pretty place
Design Symposium co-sponsored with Horticulture Magazine
San Francisco Botanical Garden
Sun, Jan 27, 8:00am--5:00pm
Flowering herb knots, productive potagers, home orchards ripe with fruit – these are some of the joys of gardens that function as more than superbly designed and meticulously maintained spaces. These are gardens that pay back hard work with fresh food, cut flowers and sustained enjoyment.
The trend in garden design has been focused on these workhorse gardens for some time, but beautifully executed gardens that produce for our vases and tables are classics that will always be in fashion.
Join us for an exciting and inspiring day working through the design principles and horticultural techniques as well as sharing in some of the delights of beautiful, bountiful gardens that work.
Our speaker line-up features Jennifer Bartley, author of Designing the New Kitchen Garden, SFBGS Curator and "workhorse garden" expert Don Mahoney, and McEvoy Ranch Head Gardener Margaret Koski-Kent. Rounding out the day will be Garden to Vase author Linda Beutler.
Registration includes all handouts and refreshments, as well as lunch. There will be plenty of opportunities to shop, visit the Garden and network with other Bay Area garden lovers.
