Confessions of a Garden Fanatic, Still Crazy after all these years
Linda Lipton will present a power-point view of her historical garden in Salem, MA. With her husband Fred, they created a backyard garden that was featured in the summer 2018 issue of North Shore Home Magazine. They used sequential steps to create their landscaped garden from scratch. Topics in this entertaining idea-filled, PowerPoint lecture include: honoring the historical context of a garden site, creating a feeling of authenticity and charm in a New England garden and getting designer results in a DIY garden.
