New Jersey Springfest - My Upcoming Talk

  The New Jersey Springfest is coming! 

The show is held at the Sussex County Fairgrounds in Augusta, NJ, March 17-20, 2016.

Touted as "NJ's finest flower & garden show", the Springfest Conservatory and 20,000 square feet of exhibition space will be packed with vendors of garden related products - from displays to edibles to flowers to great garden tools.

The proceeds of the non-profit, inspiring event, produced for garden-lovers, benefit the promotion of excellence in horticulture.

Premier garden designers and landscape companies will  feature displays of natural stone, waterfalls and patios, and garden plants in all forms.
I'll be speaking on Friday - March 18, 2016 at 12:30:

My Powerpoint talk is Serenity by Design:  Secrets for Creating Outdoor Spaces that Renew and Refresh 

The description reads:
"Why do some gardens make us feel relaxed? Landscape designer Jan Johnsen mixes ancient ideas with little-known scientific facts to show how to make an outdoor space more inviting. 

This captivating talk will open your eyes to a new way of seeing the outdoor world. Jan explains why north is the direction for artful viewing gardens and illustrates why circles and ovals are so appealing to us. She shares ideas for making that shady corner a ‘power spot’. 

Jan also shows how colors in a garden can impact our mood. Of interest to all garden lovers! "

I will be selling and signing books as well:
