Saturday, May 10 from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m
“Three outstanding presenters”– Ruah Donnelly, Duncan Brine,
and Kerry Mendez.
I’m pleased that Ruah suggested to Kerry that I join this symposium.
I’ve known Ruah for more than several years; she is a classy lady. She is filled with stories, and wonderfully articulate about plants, nurseries, horticulture, and public gardens.
Ruah Donnelly is the author of The Adventurous Gardener: Where to Buy the Best Plants in New England and The Adventurous Gardener: Where to Buy the Best Plants in New York and New Jersey, both outstanding resources for exploring the best specialty nurseries in these areas.
Duncan Brine founded his naturalistic landscape design and installation firm, Horticultural Design, Inc., in 1984. (www.GARDENLARGE.com ) They specialize in native plants and whole property gardens. Recently, Anne Raver of The New York Times wrote about Duncan’s own 6-acre “dream-like landscape” in Pawling, NY.
Kerry Mendez, garden consultant, designer, writer, teacher, former TV garden spot host, and guest on HGTV, will ‘bookend’ their presentations with two new garden talks: Three Seasons Of Color –
