Peterborough Parks Committee Chairwoman Maude Odgers will present a one-hour workshop for The Garden Conservancy. “Digging Deeper,” on how her lifelong work as an artist has influenced her unique approach to garden design Saturday, June 25, from 4 to 6 p.m. at her gardens.

Odgers is drawn to plants, shrubs and trees with interesting foliage and texture to create living tapestries. Using her own evolving landscape as illustration, she’ll discuss her method of garden composition and highlight the details that enhance a garden’s structure, theme and impact.  

For more than 40 years, Odgershas worked and reworked this land that she and her husband John cleared and planted, and upon which they built their home. Her gardens consist of meandering mixed borders influenced by English gardens, several woodland gardens, an herb garden, a garden with a pond, an orchard and a small raised-bed vegetable garden. Her garden has been featured in numerous garden journals.

Tickets are $40, and include to this garden’s open day June 25 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. To purchase tickets online, go to gardenconservancy.org/open-days/open-days-schedule/digging-deeper-an-artist-s-garden-a-living-tapestry.
