5/2 - Noted garden author Joe Lamp'l coming to Fellows Riverside Gardens

Posted: Updated:

On May 2nd Fellows Riverside Gardens will welcome Joe Lamp'l, well known gardener, educator and author. Joe, creator and host of PBS' Growing a Greener World, will present an evening lecture at 7:00 p.m. entitled, "Greening Your Garden While Protecting the Planet."

Joe's infatuation with gardening and nature began as a child after a run-in with his parents' favorite shrub; he panicked and jammed the broken branch into the ground. A few weeks later, it had taken root. Joe was not only relieved; he was also hooked on horticulture.

That passion has resulted in a lifetime of learning that he shares with national audiences through his books, syndicated column, and as host of the popular series, Fresh from the Garden on DIY network and GardenSMART on PBS. Joe will combine his television experience and expertise of gardening, environmental stewardship and passion for living a more eco-friendly life in his lecture, "Greening Your Garden While Protecting the Planet".

Gardeners enjoy a connection with the earth unlike anyone else. Why not join us for this entertaining and informative evening.

Two options are available at registration. Meet and greet Joe at a reception featuring wine and hors d'oeuvres prepared from locally grown products at 5:30 along with the lecture at 7:00, or lecture only. The cost for the reception and lecture is $30 (FFRG members $25). Lecture only is $20 (FFRG members $15).

Please call Fellows Riverside Gardens (330-740-7116) to register.
