About this Event

C.L. is the author of Sand and Soil: Creating Beautiful Gardens on Cape Cod and the Islands. She will sign books after her talk.

About "Sand and Soil": With a climate in equal measure challenging and rewarding, the Cape and Islands proves a bold canvas for any would-be tamers of this unique landscape. In these pages, C.L. Fornari offers expert advice with the warm and casual tone of an acutely knowledgeable friend. She is the author of many acclaimed gardening books, quite a number of them focusing on the Cape's precise landscape and growing conditions. Drawing on her own experience, she deftly disentangles the many idiosyncrasies and potential pitfalls of growing a healthy and beautiful garden on Cape Cod and its surrounding islands. Complete with an index to help you navigate the parade of flowers, fungicides, and footstools, Sand and Soil is the perfect how-to survival guide to assuage your horticultural anxieties.
