We are delighted to introduce award-winning author Kelly D. Norris, one of the leading horticulturists of his generation.

About this event

Norris is known for his remarkable talent and ability to transform the most challenging landscape into a work of art. As a speaker, Norris will inspire and challenge one’s imagination. He has an uncommon passion for sharing what he knows with fellow gardeners. SFGC member Ellen Hubbell says of Norris’ work, “As home gardeners, we’re inspired to consider the wild beauty and thriving ecology of meadows, prairies, woodlands, and streamsides — to imbue these aesthetics of naturalism, its romance and emotion, in our own gardens.” The program and luncheon will be followed with book sales and signing of New Naturalism: Designing and Planting a Resilient, Ecologically Vibrant Home Garden.

More about Kelly D. Norris

“I’m interested in space and mass as it relates to landscape and human perception. How do we experience nature? What relationship do we have with the living surface of place?”, says Norris. “I’m driven by the nature of place, curating plantings that will thrive for seasons as an ongoing intervention with wildness. My artistic approach is plant-driven.

As a planting designer in public and private space, Norris explores the intersections of people, plants and place through ecological, site-specific design and art.

Norris designed gardens have been featured in The New York Times, Organic Gardening, Better Homes and Gardens, Martha Stewart Living, Fine Gardening and Garden Design. He is the author of several books on horticulture. Norris has earned recognition from a variety of organizations including a Zone Horticulture Commendation from The Garden Club of America in 2018. His passion for planting at the intersections of horticulture and ecology has culminated in his new book New Naturalism: Designing and Planting a Resilient, Ecologically Vibrant Home Garden.
