Fred Rice to Present at the Seaside Garden Club on March 11th at the Manchester Community Center

Kate Wilwerth from the Seaside Garden Club writes,

“Hi Kim – Great to follow your Monarch journey in Mexico. Beautiful photos and accompanying text! The Seaside Garden Club has a great program coming up next week. Fred is a dynamic speaker – should be a great turn out!  Thanks for your continued support!”

The Seaside Garden club is thrilled to have the always entertaining Fred Rice present his new program entitled “The Well Decorated Garden” on Tuesday, March 11th at the Manchester Community Center.  Doors open at 7:00 pm for social time; the program begins promptly at 7:30 pm.  Light refreshments will be served. We are pleased to announce that this program is open to all at no charge, thanks to the generosity of the Manchester Cultural Council.  

Fred describes his new program: An appealing garden is the result of the sum of it’s individual parts, and plant material is only a part of the horticultural equation. The “bones” of the garden provide the form, the plants provide color, texture, and fragrance, but there is another factor that provides a sort of garnish,  a sort of human touch.  The addition of sculpture, furniture, structures, and architecture help to make each garden unique to it’s creator and the possibilities are nearly endless!  “The Well Decorated Garden” explores many of those possibilities.

Fred Rice, former Manchester resident (now residing in Rome, New York), is a well known garden designer, consultant and sought-after horticultural lecturer. He has nearly 30 years experience as a lecturer/public speaker throughout the Eastern United States and in the UK.  His former home at 9 Friend Street in Manchester was open regularly for garden tours and has been featured in many publications, including Country Homes, Country Gardens, The English Garden and Dream Gardens Across America.  In addition, Fred has many stage and screen credits to his name for wig and makeup design.  His resume also includes floral design and consultation and teaching.  Visit Fred’s website for more information: http://frederickrice.com/

Betty-SandersBetty Sanders 

Garden Design for Decades by Betty Sanders.  Gardens should never be a burden to us.  What we want in our 20’s and 30’s is not what the same as we want in later years.  You’ll learn how to keep your gardens as your needs and  abilities change.  It’s a matter of plant selection and design, and can pay dividends for decades.

We are thrilled to have Betty Sanders back to present this program. Betty is a Massachusetts Master Gardener with a degree in organic chemistry and a well-respected garden speaker. Currently serving as vice-president of the Bay State’s 150-member Master Gardener Association, she said she gives lectures that “combine my knowledge of gardening and chemistry” Betty is nationally accredited flower show judge. She has studied gardening everywhere from Arnold Arboretum to the New York Botanical Garden and the New England Wildflower Society.Visit Betty’s website:  http://www.bettyongardening.com/
