Reminder: Designing city-sized gardens focus of presentation in Edmonds Sept. 16

Lorene Forkner

Lorene Edwards Forkner, editor of Pacific Horticulture Magazine, author and avid gardener, will speak on “3 Big Rules (& 4 small ones) for Designing Gardens” from 10 a.m.-noon Saturday, Sept. 16 at the Edmonds Theater, 415 Main St.

In the new world of city-sized gardens, high-density urban housing and precious few hours for leisure — and even fewer for slaving in the garden — you have to be a master of invention or mistress of ingenuity when it comes to fitting a garden into a busy 21st century life. Today’s savvy gardeners are creating small gardens with big impact that enhance our lives and still allow time for relaxing.

Pacific Horticulture magazine is a quarterly publication exploring plants and gardens on the West Coast and from similar growing regions around the world, and featuring the gardeners who tend them.


Tickets are available for $10 and can be purchased on Brown Paper Tickets at You may also purchases tickets at the door, cash only, or contact Barbara at for an alternate method of payment. 

Proceeds benefit the Arboretum Foundation.
