Please come to my talk - SEPT 16 - 6:30 pm - NYC - Creating Serenity Gardens

I will be giving a Powerpoint presentation on Thursday Sept. 16 on  at 6:30 pm

Tranquility by Design: Creating a Serenity Garden

at The New York Horticultural Society
148 West 37th Street, 13th Floor (between Broadway and 7th Avenue)
New York, NY 10018-6909

it is a fascinating look at little known garden design ideas that enhance well being in an outdoor space based on ancient practices and modern discoveries....

my basic premise is that there is life in a stone, a plant, a tree and even water. When we are in a serene garden we connect to an 'aliveness' that resides in these living forms.

Find out why a garden on the north side of a house is best suited for a viewing garden and why east is considered 'the most auspicious direction'. Learn what the 'moth theory' is and how to use it for the best outdoor lighting layout! Enjoy a lively discussion about geomagnetics and determining the 'power spot' in a landscape. And discover how the colors in a garden can arouse or calm and which plants are best for a serene outdoor space...

Doors open at 6 pm (come then for refreshments and to look around); the hour presentation starts at 6:30pm
Call 212.757.0915 or e mail to register in advance


Hort members $5; non-members $15


  1. oh gosh I would love to hear that - good to know that I have as "auspicious garden"!

  2. HI African Aussie - I will write more about it in later posts... but there really is something to know (scientifically based) about about the power of the directions.
