AN AFTERNOON IN ITALYʼS GARDENS – Sunday, May 18, 2-4 PM
Come be inspired and learn about classic Italian garden design, history, and ideas for your own garden with Cathy Edger, an active member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD). Sheʼll be sharing with us her extensive slide collection of these amazing gardens. Visions of large potted citrus and the limonaia, tunnels of shrubs, dramatic double staircases, sunken gardens, theatrical gardens and more have all stood the test of time.
In 2009 Cathy, a former park ranger, along with her 92 year old mother-in-law and 20 fellow members of the APLD visited various villa gardens in Italy. For two weeks they traveled from Lake Como through Tuscany stopping to see gardens from the early Renaissance in the 15th century through the Romantic period of the 19th century. Now you too can visit these gardens with a little armchair traveling with us. A $5 donation is requested for this event. We will have refreshments available for purchase. Please RSVP by calling the NBICF Center at 591-9696. Space is limited so please reserve a seat.
