Join James Wilson, the owner and lead designer at Garden Stories, landscape design company based in Northeast Portland.

Gardening is creating beautiful alchemy between you, your home, your site conditions, your lifestyle and the climate and ecology of your location. James will discuss how planning plant communities enhances both the human experience of a garden as well as how the garden lives within its environment. Your garden can simultaneously be an ecologically beneficial landscape that is well-planned and beautiful throughout the seasons — and James will tell you how.
