Creating harmony, simplicity and peace in the landscape......

"Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help.

Gardening is an instrument of grace. "

May Sarton

Next Friday - My One Day Class at NY Botanical Garden


Next Friday - November 12, 2010, I am giving my one day class at the NY Botanical Garden,
Designing Outdoor Spaces that Relax and Renew the Spirit


I will share how to look at the physical world from a unique perspective which will strengthen your ability to create serene and harmonious outdoor spaces. I received the 'Instructor of the Year' award from NYBG and I will do my best to live up to that honor.

I love to share what I have learned over the decades and I do so with enthusiasm, Powerpoint presentations and in class demonstrations are included...


I will show how to incorporate various cultural and ancient traditions into a garden. Specifically these include :


DISCOVER THE POWER POINT IN YOUR BACKYARD

 
HOW THE DIVINE PROPORTION CAN CREATE HARMONY IN YOUR GARDEN

WHY EAST WAS JEFFERSON'S FAVORITE DIRECTION

WHICH TREES BRING HAPPINESS (literally) TO A LANDSCAPE

HOW TO USE THE POWER OF COLOR TO ENHANCE A SERENE ATMOSPHERE

so please join me - it will be fun and informative and you will certainly meet other like minded, kindred spirits there as well.
