A Saturday offering is of particular interest to this forum. A talk is being given by Lucinda Brockway, the garden historian and landscape designer who oversaw the restoration of historical Strawberry Banke in Portsmouth, NH. She has her own garden restoration and design business in Maine. Anyone familiar with her work?

Here is the information on her talk and also the cut-and-paste address to a good article about her and her work over time. It's from her alma mater alumni news(Rhode Island School of Design).
