Though we often see them as utilitarian extensions of our homes, gardens are much more than ornament or recreation. We think of ourselves as the users, the givers of meaning, the protagonists, but a garden too can be the protagonist. It can act on us, change us, and cause us to think about our experience and existence. Using gorgeous images from his newly released book, Federal Twist, featuring his New Jersey home garden, James Golden shares how to design for a garden’s intangible aspects, its atmosphere, mood, ecology, and character of place.

We offer Continuing Education credits (CEUS) for LA CES and APLD for successful completion of this course.
