An Oasis of Art, Horticulture and Inspiration
You are Invited to a Free Seminar
Thursday, April 16th @ 10:30 a.m.
Location: 627 Route 1, York, Maine (in the Eldredge Building)
Our speaker will be John Forti, a nationally recognized lecturer, garden historian, ethnobotanist and garden writer. John has a very interesting background as Director for Historic Landscapes at Strawbery Banke, Director of Horticulture at Plimoth Plantation Museum and the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, and Board Chair for Slow Food Seacoast. He also posts as “The Heirloom Gardener – John Forti” on Facebook.
John Forti will be speaking about Bedrock Gardens where he is the Executive Director. Located in Lee, NH – only 30 minutes South of us – the Garden is an Oasis of Art, Horticulture and Inspiration and integrates unusual specimens and unique sculptures. Bedrock Gardens was developed and founded by Jill Nooney and Bob Munger. The Garden has now evolved into a premier public garden.
John Forti will explore the history of a dairy farm turned into a remarkable garden oasis and give an illustrated talk about the past, present and future of this plant and art collector’s paradise.
We invite you to enjoy this engaging and informative presentation about the amazing and beautiful Bedrock Gardens.
Space is limited, so please make reservations
Light refreshments will be served.
What Are Our Attendees Saying?

I will be attending your Gilding Seminar and am truly looking forward to it. I attended your flower arranging class and loved it!! This will also give me an opportunity to shop at Eldredge which I always enjoy.
I hope you continue your fine work of bringing talented artists to present their skills, knowledge and advice. It brings our community together, provides an opportunity to learn something new and share an enjoyable time with friendly people.
Also the raffle you hold to help the Coastal Clovers 4-H Club provides attendees with an opportunity to support a very worthwhile organization. The prizes you offer the lucky winners are things they can take home and really enjoy.

Thank you for a fabulous and informative lecture. I learned a lot. Dennis was very personable and very prepared. What a pleasure. The sautéed mushroom dish was delicious as well and a treat.
I sautéed the mushrooms which I purchased last night with an organic piece of steak. They were phenomenal. I can’t wait to visit the farm sometime this winter. I will become a customer for sure.

My friends and I enjoyed the seminar on Thursday very much. Brigitte was an exceptional speaker and I absolutely love the e-cloth. I bought the 8 pack and have been using it all over my house with amazing results. I think it’s wonderful that you and Atlantic Design Center run these seminars!
We would love for you, Ms Claesson, to share this email with the “Powers -to-be” at Eldredge. Without you, this wouldn’t be the tremendous success it is.
We have met new friends through this seminar, learned more about the community, met staff at Eldredge we didn’t know and even found the right tiles for our bathroom renovation while we were there.
Although we are unable to attend this up and coming seminar, we look forward to the next, and the next, and so on. Thank you again for all you do. It surely does not go unnoticed. See you soon.
