Renowned garden artist Keeyla Meadows sees the world in strong, saturated shades. She’ll bring this unique vision to life in a walking workshop in her own garden, showing how to use wild, uninhibited color to connect indoor and outdoor spaces and turn a garden into a work of art. Learn how to pick colors that work together; how to coordinate the colors of walls, benches, containers, and garden art; how to organize garden spaces through the use of color; and how to translate personal color preferences into tangible form in the garden. Fearless Color Gardens also features a new way of looking at color with "Keeyla's Color Triangle;" easy to use tips on growing edibles in color themed gardens; and Keeyla's favorite plants for specific colors. Participants will leave wanting to reinvent the staid rules of the color wheel and turn their color preferences into intoxicatingly vibrant garden expressions.

With a master’s degree in sculpture from the University of California, Keeyla Meadows has been making vibrant gardens around the Bay Area for forty years that successfully integrate rock work, benches, paving, fountains, and sculpture with the colors and textures of plants. Keeyla has written two garden books: Fearless Color Gardens (Timber Press, 2009) and Making Gardens Works of Art (Sasquatch Books, 2002). A fresh fruit tart will be served.

Advance registration is required and space is limited.
