Join designer Sharee Solow as she presents "Japanese Garden Design: The Stroll Garden (Edo Period 1600-1868)." Finally, a design lecture that will clarify the complex topic of Japanese gardens using language and images everyone can grasp!
Through demonstration photos from Solow’s study in Japan and visits to Japanese-style gardens in the United States, audiences will develop a fresh perspective on gardens that are too often presented as being beyond comprehension, even elitist. An extensive handout will have all the notes you need to put down the pencil and get immersed in the subject, celebrating Japan's holiday Culture Day.
One of the Mid-Atlantic region’s most respected certified horticulturists and landscape designers, Solow blends a lifetime of accomplishments and international travel to offer uniquely sophisticated landscape designs and garden design lectures. A popular speaker and writer for professional landscape organizations, garden societies and arboretums, she is known for visionary ideas but also practical and realistic applications, often incorporating recent discoveries and trends from her international travels.
Designed for the home and hobby gardeners as well as horticultural professionals, the Ambler Arboretum Horticulture Lecture Series, presented by regional experts, will inspire participants while challenging their way of thinking about horticulture.
Program registration begins at 6:30 p.m., the presentation begins at 7 p.m. and Q&A follow at 8 p.m.
