Past Event October 2017 - Foodscape Revolution with guest speaker Brienne Arthur

Foodscaping visionary Brie Arthur looks at under-utilized garden spaces and sees places where food can be inter-planted with ornamentals for a new way of sustainable landscaping that embraces both beauty and utility.  Learn how pairing edibles in a traditional ornamental landscape adds purpose to everyday spaces while cutting down on maintenance.  The best edible and ornamental plants are featured to inspire attendees to create their own purposeful landscapes.

Brie Arthur studied Landscape Design and Horticulture at Purdue University and has over a decade of experience at nurseries such as Plant Delights and Camellia Forest.  Brie has been dubbed a revolutionary for her leadership in the suburban Foodscape movement.  In 2017 Brie received the Emerging Horticultural Professional Award by the The American Horticultural Society, and published her first book.
