On Monday, May 14, 2012, the San Diego Horticultural Society welcomes author, speaker and avid gardener/cook, Lorene Edwards Forkner. With her keen designer’s eye and effervescent wit, Lorene will discuss Small is the New BIG: 3 Big Rules (& 4 Small Ones) for Designing Small Gardens with Impact. City-sized gardens, high density urban housing, fewer hours for leisure (and even fewer for slaving in the garden) – you have to be a master of invention or mistress of ingenuity when it comes to fitting a garden into a busy 21st century life. Lorene offers us a lively evening illustrated with slides and stories of gardens infused with personality and passion, structure and changing seasonal interest. You can have a landscape that lives large regardless of the size of its footprint and still have time left over to enjoy it. The evening starts at 6:00 p.m. in the Surfside Race Place at the Del Mar Fairgrounds on Jimmy Durante Blvd. in Del Mar. Parking is free and everyone is welcome. Admission
