Meet the Author: Handmade Garden Products

Book Signing with Lorene Edwards Forkner
Saturday, May 5 1:00 pm

Author, speaker and avid gardener/cook, Lorene Edwards Forkner revels in the seasonal pleasures and broad scope of gardening life in the Pacific Northwest. Supported by a degree in fine art and years of practical experience owning and operating a small specialty nursery in Seattle, Lorene considers her approach to making gardens to be rooted in childhood outdoor play. A designer’s eye for re-purposing objects and a keen sense of conservation and thrift infuse her every effort with personality, wit and sustainability.

Lorene is the new editor of Pacific Horticulture magazine, a quarterly journal and website for West Coast gardeners and those who look to the West for inspiration and fresh ideas. Her latest book, Handmade Garden Projects: Step by Step instructions for Creative Garden Features, Containers, Lighting & More encourages gardeners to put aside “yard work” and start having fun again making their mark on the landscape. Lorene blogs about gardens and the stories behind them at
