A Wednesday Walk in the Garden
Vertical garden systems offer a number of benefits, such as increased accessibility for people with restricted physical abilities, privacy, vibrancy, and many more. Frequently people think a vertical system is not feasible for a number of reasons, but in this presentation living wall designer Irene Barber will share a number of opportunities that will inspire the breakdown of preconceived limitations, including information about budget conscious options, plant and soil materials and creative vertical garden designs.
Irene Barber is the Adult Education Program Manager and Horticultural Therapist, HTR at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay, Maine where she designs and maintains vertical gardens in the universally accessible Lerner Garden of the Five Senses. Irene is owner and landscape designer of Greenscapes Design LLC in Durham, ME specializing in therapeutic, accessible and ecological outdoor living environments for private and public settings.
