Chris Newsom of The Fuquay-Varina Parks & Grounds Superintendent has a NC State certification as a landscape technician, horticulture, turf management and playground inspection. We were surprised to hear of the many tasks he oversees and pleased to hear of his aspirations to bring a sustainable landscape environment to our community.
Brie Arthur, expert and author of The Foodscape Revolution encouraged us to join the revolution by growing bounty and beauty in everyday landscapes. Brie Arthur has fine-tuned her signature design technique of Foodscaping, a sustainable landscape practice. Brie studied Landscape Design and Horticulture at Purdue University. She has more than a decade of experience in plant production at leading nurseries, including Plant Delights and Camellia Forest. Interested members are following up with a Foodscape workshop at Brie's home. Brie's garden will also be on our fall Garden Tour.
