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!

    I haven’t spent a lot of time in the vegetable garden this summer — Dan has been right on top of the planting, the weeds, and the harvests — but this week I found myself in there a couple of times. Gail, Betsy, the volunteers, and I had the pleasure of helping with a huge […]
  • Constructive criticism (Sep 05, '14)
    Our to-do list in September is blissfully short. The gardens are as lush as can be and just need to be coaxed along until frost or until we’re ready to start moving plants around (musical perennials) and preparing for winter. It has been so dry lately that the weeds have slowed down slightly, so we’re […]
