Kitchen Garden Design with Ellen Ecker Ogden

Looking for more cool stuff to do?
We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

In partnership with the Essex County Garden Club, Appleton Farms is offering 10 spaces in this fabulous lecture by Ellen Ecker Ogden, award winning garden designer.

In this hands-on design workshop, you will learn how to take a fresh look at your vegetable garden, with an eye towards aesthetics, comfort and ease. The goal is to create a garden space that is designed right from the start – on paper, using the right set of tools, and drawing inspiration from a basic primer of good design. You will start to draw an edible garden design that has style and visual appeal, looking at new ways to fit growing areas into the natural landscape of the back yard. Bring graph paper and pencils, and photos of your garden.

Garden Speaker, ELLEN ECKER OGDEN is an award-winning food and garden writer and kitchen garden designer who is known for her informative and fun loving garden talks. Her kitchen garden designs combine artistic elements with classic garden design techniques that elevate a backyard vegetable garden into a European inspired kitchen garden.

Pre-registration is required by emailing Beth Zschau at bzschau@thetrustees.org
