Garden Design Luncheon: Stephen Orr on Tomorrow's Garden


For Immediate Release: Bristol, RI - Stephen Orr, Editorial Director of gardening at Martha Stewart Living joins Blithewold Mansion, Gardens & Arboretum at the Rhode Island Country Club to speak about his book, Tomorrow's Garden: Design and Inspiration for a New Age of Sustainable Gardening, followed by a relaxing luncheon on November 8, 2012 at 10am.

Stephen Orr, a self-taught gardener, believes that everyone has a green thumb even if they don't know it yet. He shares his love of horticulture as the Editorial Director for gardening at Martha Stewart Living. Orr was previously the garden editor at both House & Garden and Domino magazines and has written extensively for The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and other publications.He has been a regularly featured gardening expert on "The CBS Early Show" and "The Today Show," and has guest-hosted "The Gardener's Hotline" on WOR Radio. He was also a segment producer for the PBS television series "Cultivating Life," and has edited two garden cookbooks by British author Sarah Raven.

With a keen eye for aesthetics, as well as a strong concern for the environment, Orr has developed a true sense of what a modern garden should be: manageable, visually pleasing, and responsible. He will show the audience an array of gardens throughout America that have been scaled back and simplified without sacrificing beauty or innovative design.

And it’s a treat whether I’m learning something totally […]
