At Home in The Garden; The Garden Kitchen
Talks coming up at each end of the summer.
June 26, 6:30PM, Thomaston Public Library, Thomaston, Maine, Art in the Environment lecture series:
Your Own Private Environment: At Home in the Garden
A lot of what matters inside matters outside too: a comfortable flow of traffic from place to place, plenty of light, individual personality in the décor department and of course a terrific kitchen (aka vegetables). I never know until the last minute, but it’s safe to say I’ll be discussing basic cottage garden design; integrating food plants with ornamentals; and durable garden embellishments from homemade twig arches to antique urns.
September 12 – 14 Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, Boothbay , Maine
Maine Fare – The 3rd annual get-together focussed on Maine Food: tastings, marketplace, workshops, demos, talks and a couple of very special meals. As usual, I’ll be holding forth on eating locally in a cold climate and demonstrating tasty strategies that make it easy to do. As usual, that’s all I know right now. Please check the Maine Fare Website frequently for detailed updates on the whole weekend’s offerings.
Update: Mainefare for this year has been cancelled, but that doesn’t change the “please check the website” part. Planners tell me they are doing this in order to make 09 even more wnderful and there are rumors of interesting sub-events to still be held this fall.
