Save the date to welcome spring with your floral friends during Klehmâ€™s spring garden luncheon held at Giovanniâ€™s. This yearâ€™s speaker is Terry Guen, founder of the award-winning, Chicago-based Terry Guen Design Associates, Inc. She has focused her twenty-five year career as a landscape architect and urban designer on creating spaces for public benefit and enhancing the quality of the urban outdoor environment.
As Master Landscape Architect for Chicagoâ€™s Lakefront Millennium Park, she was responsible for the design and implementation of the entire 25 acre landscape. In her presentation, â€œGardening Large: a City, a Park, a Garden,â€ Ms. Guen will discuss the need to develop a passion for nurturing the earth, through planning, design, and gardening. Giving examples from her own garden projects, she will talk about understanding the local ecology and creating great gardens both for ourselves and for future generations.
Design Workshop: Pots, Planters, Urns and Troughs
Prior to the featured presentation, Jim Wojtowicz, Klehmâ€™s new Landscape Architectural Consultant, will demonstrate how to design seasonal containers that will add the â€œWow Factorâ€ to your garden, patio, or front porch.
