Gardens of Beauty for Relaxation 

Whether an estate sized garden or a tiny slice of property, gardening engages us with nature.  How might we frame a vista or vignette so that the sights, sounds, fragrance, movement and flavors evoke pleasure – feeding the soul? Explore imaginative landscape design, where different scale and ambiance are created.  Experience the pleasure of a Zen-like retreat… or an old farmstead reinterpreted with a cosmopolitan photographer’s eye.  Experiment with different plant forms and sculptural elements.  Come visit the Garden Muses at work!

As always, the popular Salad Lucheon buffet and Artisan Market of garden related goods will convince people to spend more time in the Village, where nearby shops welcome visitors with special attractions and sales.
