Join extraordinary plantsmen Ed Bowen of Opus Nursery and John Gwynne and Mikel Folcarelli of Sakonnet Garden for a lively discussion of the plants and design concepts employed in creating the well-known Sakonnet Garden in Little Compton, RI. Learn about choice plants and consider the unusual design elements employed in this garden that surprise and delight. It is a great opportunity to hear about the inner thoughts of three great gardeners and plantsmen who share a few ideas to bring home to your own garden.

Ed Bowen is owner of Opus Nursery, a nano-nursery in Little Compton, RI, with an increasingly anachronistic horticultural approach: actively collecting, propagating, and growing plants. His focus is the under-cultivated and garden-worthy, with a specialization in unusual perennials. Sakonnet Gardens, the long-term prject of John Gwynne and Mikel Folcarelli, is a secret garden embedded within a native coastal fields landscape. At the diminutive scale of a cottage garden, it is conceived as an intimate place to explore, with multiple paths leading one onward to unexpected experiences.
