    Rejuvenate Your Landscape

    We often inherit landscapes filled with disconnected odds and ends, then wonder how to piece it together into a focused design and make it our own.  Lisa Orgler will explore ways to stitch together an existing landscape to create cohesive garden spaces.


    Award-winning designer, artist and educator, Lisa Orgler is the creator of the website, Paper Garden Workshop. Lisa uses her illustration skills to teach the topics she adores - garden design and landscape graphics. She does this full time in the Department of Horticulture at Iowa State University, plus part-time on her website. To top it off, Lisa also holds degrees in landscape architecture, is registered in the state of Iowa and is currently serving on the Association of Professional Landscape Designers National Board of Directors.

Topics include the elements of planting design (form, texture and color), traditional and contemporary planting models, plus some basic graphics of plant symbols and drawing in elevation, so you can communicate your ideas to others.

    The workshop will be held at the CVTC Energy Education Center from 1:30-4:30 pm on Saturday, March 7, 2020.

    The cost of this workshop is $5 for members  and $10 for non-members.
