FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Celebrated Landscape Designer Julie Moir Messervy to Speak at Blithewold’s Annual
Garden Design Luncheon



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 light refreshments and a presentation by Ms. Messervey, followed by a luncheon, 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! Tickets are available online (www.blithewold.org), Members rate is $75, Non-members, $85

Julie Moir Messervy’s vision for composing landscapes of beauty and meaning is furthering the evolution of landscape design and changing the way people create and enjoy their outdoor surroundings. With over three decades of experience, six books, and numerous high-profile lectures, Messervy is an innovative leader in landscape and garden design theory and practice.

Projects Messervy’s imaginative landscape design work has delighted clients including the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Marshall Field’s, Fidelity Investments, the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University, Kansas City Art Institute, and scores of residential clients.

    Even though it feels like winter has stalled over New England and we might never see the ground again, we are moving ahead towards spring. Our engines are revving and we’ll be ready to hit the ground running at the first sign of thaw. We’re sowing seeds, taking cuttings, and keeping up with the insect activity in the greenhouse […]
  • Hope springs (Feb 20, '15)
    It’s awfully hard to feel optimistic about spring when the snow is knee-deep and deeper and the temperatures are in the single digits. It feels for all the world like winter will go on forever. This is what our world looks like right now… Beautiful, yes… But I think most of us are ready to move on. […]
  • Deep winter (Feb 06, '15)
    Last week’s blizzard seem to open the gate to a real winter complete with snow storm after snow storm, and hard-core cold. We’re being tested on our ability to stay upright on icy patches, and on keeping our cool when we can’t get where we’re going on time. But we’re also being reminded about what we love about […]
