We’re pleased to announce Brie Arthur–author of The Foodscape Revolution and Gardening with Grains–as a IMGC 2021 keynote speaker!
Brie is working to revolutionize the way people garden by finding ways to incorporate edibles and traditional ornamentals into a beautiful landscape. A favorite of front-yard veggie gardeners, Brie will address how to cultivate grains and veggies alongside your favorite ornamental plants using “foodscaping” techniques.
“Brie has fine-tuned her signature design technique of Foodscaping, a sustainable landscape practice that embraces beauty and bounty. Aiming to change the way landscapes are designed and managed, Brie encourages everyone to “think outside of the box.” Learn how pairing edibles in a traditional ornamental landscape increases biodiversity and adds purpose to everyday spaces. The best edible and ornamental plant combinations are featured to inspire attendees to create purposeful landscapes that engage people of all ages! Easy strategies are explained, including how to plant a bed edge to deter moles and voles. This is a fast paced, informative presentation that leaves attendees inspired and ready to foodscape! “
Brie will also offer a concurrent session on “Marketing to Generation Me,” which will help EMGs learn strategies for reaching younger gardening audiences.
