Garden Design Luncheon: Tovah Martin
Unfortunately, the storm has impacted us in a way that we could never have imagined, Stephen Orr, Editorial Director of gardening at Martha Stewart Living, is no longer able to attend the Garden Design Luncheon, due to the conditions in New York as a result of Hurricane Sandy. Our hearts go out to Stephen and everyone else who is still suffering from the effects of this devastating storm.
However, the show must go on!

Join us at the Rhode Island Country Club for an illustrated talk by Tovah Martin, followed by a relaxing luncheon. In this lecture, we explore how a garden can reflect your personality. We discuss techniques for infusing your personal space with panache and punch while searching for your deeper individualist. No matter if you're accessorizing a grand estate or tucking a few treasured objects into a windowsill terrarium, there's always opportunity to follow your own drummer. Using examples from some of the finest gardens in the country and quoting from many of the most astute gardens in the world, Connecticut horticulturist and writer, Tovah Martin, shares advice that will help you have fun and make the most of your garden in this interactive digital slide lecture.
