Duncan Brine – Naturalistic Landscape Design: Breaking Rules on Principle

Duncan Brine, principal landscape designer at GardenLarge and the naturalistic landscape design instructor at the New York Botanical Garden, will speak on how naturalistic gardens are shaped in response to a property’s particular characteristics. The design process involves extending or establishing plant communities while creating pleasing spaces. Rather than imitating a traditional style, a naturalistic garden explores a landscape’s potential for beauty and habitat. Conventional horticultural and design rules are set aside while revealing natural beauty and supporting ecological function.
Brine’s talk is accompanied by images of the 25 year-old, 6-acre, Brine Garden in New York’s Hudson Valley. (In the Brine Garden, native plants are used extensively, but not exclusively.)
Anne Raver of the New York Times describes the Brine Garden as “a dreamlike landscape”, in which, “…plants have been given unexpected roles, in unusual places, and the delight comes in seeing what they will do on this ever-changing stage.” In Horticulture Magazine, Carleen Madigan writes, “Duncan’s philosophy of ‘gardening large’…doesn’t necessarily relate to size; it’s the idea that an entire property, be it two acres or twenty should be seen and treated as one garden…”
Brine’s work has been featured in several books, including Gardens of the Hudson Valley, Private Gardens of the Hudson Valley, and Designer Plant Combinations. The Brine Garden is on the cover of 50 Beautiful Deer Resistant Plants.

Location: In the Great Hall of the Bridgehampton Community House, open to the public, free to members, $10 non-members.

WORKSHOP     –      SOCIAL MEDIA 101

Social Media is important and we need to know more about it so we can represent HAH effectively and have another fun way to waste time on the Internet! Seriously, there’s great gardening information out there. Please join Alicia Whitaker and Janet Donohoe Ollinger for a morning of exploring Facebook, Instagram and other interesting blogs, podcasts and apps. This is a basic 101 course. Bring your fully charged I-pad, I-phone or Android device to fully participate or feel free to just sit in and listen to the jargon. We’ll be sharing ideas about interesting people and organizations to “follow” as well as learning how to upload our own photos and comments.

When: Saturday January 30th at 10:00 am (Check the phone recording at the office if the weather is miserable or dangerous.)

Where: The LoGerfo Library, FREE FOR MEMBERS AND FRIENDS, BUT SEATING IS LIMITED
