Saturday, July 25, 10:00 am – 12:00 noon – The Green Art Garden: A Garden for Nature and a Space for Art

Join artist, landscape designer, and ecologist Thomas Berger on Saturday, July 25 from 10 – noon for an Ecological Landscape Alliance private tour of the Green Art Garden, 30 US Route 1 Bypass in Kittery, Maine. Over the span of several years, Thomas renovated the formerly neglected landscape, removing debris and clearing the impenetrable stands of multiflora rose, buckthorn, barberry, autumn olive and poison ivy. In the early years Thomas planted many trees, hedges, and display beds for use as a commercial nursery. Later these landscape elements became the framework for the formal gardens with mixed borders, a reflecting pool, a grapevine-covered greenhouse frame, a miniature garden, and a pollinator-planting. Throughout the garden, Thomas displays his nature-inspired stone sculptures.
