Foodscaping 101

September 21st, 6-9pm

 Want to learn how to be sustainable? Author & Horticulturalist, Brie Arthur, explains how you can eat your yard with edible landscaping.
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 at leading nurseries such as Plant Delights and Camellia Forest, she now combines her passion for plants and sustainable land management by communicating the value of gardening across the US. Brie has been dubbed a revolutionary for her leadership in the suburban Foodscape movement and for her work with public schools across the US. She appears as correspondent on the PBS Television show “Growing A Greener World” and her debut book, The Foodscape Revolution has become a best seller on Amazon.  This year Brie was honored as the first recipient of the The American Horticultural Society’s Emerging Horticultural Professional Award.

Gail Morfesis & Friends present a varied program of music with a fun folk and international flavor. Musicians for the evening include: Gail Morfesis, a soprano who is a Fayetteville favorite that performs in seven languages, classical guitarist, Champion D. Saint-Amand, Betty Fisher, a member of the American Accordionists Association and big band, Second Time Around, and the Cape Fear Chordsmen, a well known men’s barbershop group.
