The next meeting of Inland Empire Gardeners will be on Thursday, March 7, 2019 at 6:30pm at CenterPlace, 2426 N Discovery Pl, Spokane Valley--across from the YMCA in Mirabeau Park.
LaManda Joy is an award-winning Illinois Extension Master Gardener, author, speaker and founder of Chicago’s Peterson Garden Project and, in 2019, the nation’s first education-based garden center: City Grange. Her life’s mission is to inspire everyone she meets to grow their own food--seriously. A lover of garden culture in all forms, she’s often found “plant snooping” around the US and Europe. She’s particularly enamored with the gardens of her husband Peter Wigren’s native land--Sweden. In this talk “Dreams of a Swedish Summer,” LaManda will share some of her favorite garden memories from visits over the years to Stockholm and Gotland. From kolonilott (community gardens) to 300-year-old urban farms and charming garden centers to renegade hollyhocks growing through sidewalk cracks in Stockholm. LaManda’s love for the plant world and the garden community shines through and reminds us that the love of plants is a language we can all speak.
