Elements of the Japanese Garden

Kate Schubart • robart@gmavt.net

When: Apr 10, 2021, 10:00 AM

SATURDAY, April 10, 10-12 (online)
Japanese gardens are highly-refined, creative interpretations of our environment. The Japanese garden also evokes emotion, conveys a sense of place, and promotes well-being. Nicole LaPlante will discuss Japanese garden design principles, illustrated in both public gardens and humble settings. Key considerations such as human use, material choices, and long-term care will be explored in this talk.

This program will be presented on Zoom.
