EventKeeper : Tell a Friend
VIRTUAL Author Visit with John Forti 'The Heirloom Gardener'

Thursday October 28, 2021
7:00 PM until 8:00 PM


 We welcome garden lecturer John Forti to share his new book The heirloom gardener : traditional plants & skills for the modern world and gardening wisdom via Zoom.

 These days, we all need some good news and a way to participate in meaningful change. The Heirloom Gardener is a book for gardeners who want to deepen their   knowledge and improve life for families, pollinators and wildlife in their own backyards.  It’s a love poem to the earth; a map to the art of living intentionally and a   guidepost for environmental gardeners and artisans.  It unearths old-ways, storied plants and artisanal life-skills; like seed-saving, herbalism, foraging, distillation,   ethnobotany and organics which contribute to a new 21st century arts and crafts movement. With woodcuts from Caldecott Medal artist Mary Azarian, The Heirloom   Garden offers a dose of wild hope for a weary nation.

 John Forti www.jforti.com is a garden historian and ethnobotanist who has directed gardens for Plimoth Plantation Museum, Strawbery Banke Museum,   Massachusetts Horticultural Society, and Bedrock Gardens. As a Slow Food Slow Food USA Governor and biodiversity specialist, his preservation work has helped   to restore countless native and heirloom plants and has brought traditional artisanal practices to modern thinking.  He has won numerous awards for historic garden   preservation, children’s garden design, herbal and historical education and the 2021 Award of Excellence from National Garden Clubs, the largest volunteer   gardening organization in the world. This book was inspired by his posts as 'The Heirloom Gardener - John Forti' which go out regularly to millions on Facebook that   value his uniquely curated blend of history, horticulture, environmentalism, and botanical art. His book can be purchased at Andover Bookstore, or from any online   supplier.
