Strategic Garden Design

January 13, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am


The Joanne Walkovic Memorial Lecture Co-sponsored with the Hardy Plant Society/Mid-Atlantic Chapter

Effective garden design is about more than just selecting the right plants and putting them in the right place. It’s also about making strategic decisions with an eye toward long-term impacts on the garden’s future. Drawing from her experiences with The Arboretum at Penn State, Shari Edelson will discuss principles of strategic garden design, including how the decisions we make today sculpt the garden we will have tomorrow. Shari is Director of Horticulture and Curator at The Arboretum at Penn State, a new and expanding garden on the campus of Penn State University. Her passion for public landscapes has brought her from urban greening work in Baltimore, Maryland to numerous gardens and horticultural organizations in the mid-Atlantic region. She was the Scott Arboretum Curatorial Intern from 2007 – 2008! Free and open to the public, space limited to 200. First come, first served.
