I wanted to take a few minutes to tell you about an exciting event that the Oakville Garden Club has organized: An Evening with Freeman Patterson.
Freeman Patterson is an internationally acclaimed photographer, teacher of visual design,writer and gardener. He is a member of the Order of Canada and his photographic images are in the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Canada.
Gardening since he was a young boy, Freeman has created many distinctive gardens all of which have been seamlessly set into the surrounding landscape and feature native plant species. On the evening of November 6th, Freeman show some of his amazing photographs and describe the fields, forest and bog of his home at Shamper's Bluff in New Brunswick.
The theme for the presentation is "Gardening with what you have". Freeman encourages gardeners to garden, while being respectful of the local ecology.
