We are so happy that C.L. Fornari will join us on Thursday evening, June 13th for a very special event to tell us about and sign copies of her fabulous new gardening book, Sand and Soil: Creating Beautiful Gardens on the Cape and Islands! This is a (free) ticketed event. Click here for tickets.
Having lived on Cape Cod for twenty-five years, avid gardener and respected garden writer C.L. Fornari has a wealth of advice to share, all calibrated to the unique landscape of the Cape and Islands. Clearly the product of extensive research and personal experimentation, Fornari takes us through the many facets of growing a successful garden on the Cape, from soil supplements to weather, vines to shrubs, species of local plants and animals: friends and foes. Brimming with personal hints and resources, this is a must-have guide to gardening on Cape Cod and the islands!
