Planting Design Workshop – Lisa Orgler

This workshop will explore the beauty of arranging plant materials in your garden beds. Topics will include the elements of planting design including an in-depth look at form, texture and color; how to use these elements to compose a planting design, traditional and contemporary planting models, plus some basic graphics of plant symbols and drawing in elevation, so you can communicate your ideas to others. Though not required, participants are welcome to bring along their favorite plant books or catalogues, plus a laptop or iPad. This is a hands-on workshop, so please come prepared to learn, draw, design and have fun.
