Garden Design Luncheon with Julie Moir Messervy

WHEN: Thursday, November 10, 2011 at 10:00AM - 1:00PM
WHERE: The Rhode Island Country Club

Celebrate the end of another successful gardening season at Blithewold’s annual Garden Design Luncheon on Thursday, November 10, 10 am, at the Rhode Island Country Club in Barrington.

With more than two decades of experience, four books and numerous high-profile lectures, Julie Moir Messervy has become a leader of a movement in which landscape design is as much a personal journey as it is about leaving a unique imprint upon the earth. Ms. Messervy’s philosophy is that gardens and parks can be soul-nurturing places—oases deeply rooted in outdoor archetypes, childhood imagination, and aesthetic impulses.

The morning begins with coffee or tea and a presentation by Ms. Messervey, followed by a luncheon, and a raffle that includes a personal Design Consultation with Ms. Messervy.

As a special treat Ms Messervy is generously giving each guest a copy of her book and will be available for book signing!

 

Members $75, Non-members $85

No two days are ever the same in any garden but here at Blithewold there’s a certain routine. We’re […]
  • Holiday houseplants (Dec 12, '14)
    Given how many wonderful winter-blooming houseplants there are in the world, I find it sort of astonishing that poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima) is listed as the best selling houseplant in the US and Canada. But I suppose that fact must be chalked up to a couple things: Poinsettia are festive and fun. What’s not to love about […]
