Designers Leigh Adams and John Lyons have collaborated on a unique water harvesting garden design in the hills of Altadena. Lyons and Adams will describe the development of a thriving organic garden blending fruit trees, native plants and storm water, a garden rich in pollinators, delicious fruit and vegetables and lush flowering mounds.
Watch the installation of the hardscape and the burgeoning plant growth supported by careful tending of the enriched soil. See this delightful garden blossom, and learn how you can apply these same concepts in your own garden.
John, an avid practitioner of organic garden cultivation, has been one of the Arboretum’s most popular speakers. An avid practitioner of organic garden cultivation, he has a reputation for his passion and zeal which produces spectacular results.
Leigh's love of art and children has resulted in a variety of differing art installations and activities. A very talented artist in many mediums, she created a 960 foot "DreamSnake" in the Australian section of the Arboretum using glazed tiles in mosaic patterns.
