Passing On Deep Rooted Wisdom

July 13, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 pm

Wisdom accumulates.  Self taught, old southern gardeners were my mentors who instilled fascination with the earth. They saw soil devistation and worked tirelessly to build the soil, forest and fields we have today.

I’ll tell stories of those people while looking at the good work and the missteps the made.

We’ll meet people who use plants, worms, mushroom and a little magic to grow beautiful soil — which means beautiful plants.   We’ll look at fun ways to build soil now; ways inspired by old gardeners but updated on our organic lily farm.

I’ve created internship programs in each botanical garden I established.  Recently, on our own lily farm.  This presentation is about sustainable, earth friendly gardening and passing on the responsibility and love of both.
