Local landscape designer, Patrice Mallard owner of LIVING ROOM DESIGN will be leading a hands-on demonstration workshop on Vertical Gardening at Green Gate Farms.

Vertical Gardening, a concept popularized by French botanist Patrick Blanc, is an ancient concept that utilizes very small spaces by training gardens up architectural supports.

Participants will: help in the construction of Green Gates new vertical installation; learn step by step how to create a support system; learn what to plant; and the best irrigation techniques. In addition, participants will receive a consultation on how to design and build their own vertical garden!
