Garden Design Luncheon with Julie Moir Messervy
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
