Join author Brie Arthur for a photographic tale of The Foodscape Revolution book tour. Having visited more than 400 venues in 2 years, Brie will share stories of gardens across the US — from classic gardens of the east like Chanticleer and Longwood Gardens to beloved southern treasures such as Moore Farms and America’s first public garden Magnolia Plantation. This program is sure to inspire attendees and offer ways to recreate these scenes in your home gardens.

Originally from southeastern Michigan, Brie Arthur studied Landscape Design and Horticulture at Purdue University.  With more than a decade of experience as a grower and propagator, she now shares her knowledge and passion by communicating the value of gardening across the US.

The author of The Foodscape Revolution, Brie is a passionate leader in the foodscape movement, a model of community development that incorporates sustainable, local food production. She speaks on a variety of horticulture topics around the country and has appeared as a correspondent on the PBS television show "Growing A Greener World." In 2017 Brie was awarded the first ‘Emerging Professional’ distinction by the American Horticultural Society. Her second book, Gardening with Grains, will be available in 2019.
