A panel of Landscape Designers will give short presentations of their favorite soulful places: gardens that bring about peace, a bit of whimsy and or sensation.

Ethan Johnson, Plant Records Curator at Holden, will present A Garden For The Senses. How color, fragrance, movement and sound are essential for a rich experience to help heal mind, body and soul. Attendees will be asked to participate by sharing their experiences and feelings in the garden.

To nourish our bodies, Louise Reiling, owner of Auburn Pointe Greenhouse will talk about vertical gardening. Louise will demonstrate The Tower Garden, a self contained hydroponic vessel. Louise has grown many veggies in this container!
