Fall Gardening Symposium Will Feature Brie Arthur

— Written By

Join the Master Gardener℠ volunteers of Vance/Warren Counties on Saturday, October 5, 2019, for their Fall Gardening Symposium, which will be held in historic Warrenton, NC. This year the symposium will feature Brie Arthur, author of The Foodscape Revolution. Brie studied Landscape Design and Horticulture at Purdue University and since has worked as a grower, propagator, author, and correspondent on the Growing A Greener World show on PBS. She has a passion for sustainable, local food production and will share advice on how to practice this in your own backyard.

The presentation by Brie Arthur will take place at 1 p.m. in the Warren County Courthouse, conveniently located in the heart of Warrenton. Registration is $20 and may be submitted using the form at this link.

As a special bonus, the Master Gardener volunteers are partnering with Preservation Warrenton to offer a free walking tour of historic Warrenton starting at 10 a.m. that morning, which will highlight many fascinating stories from the town’s past. After the tour, there will be plenty of time to visit downtown shops and have lunch at one of many wonderful restaurants, before strolling over to the Courthouse for the one o’clock main event. A complete list of restaurant options will be available from the event hosts.

For those who would like an even deeper dive into Warren County history, Preservation Warrenton will also be offering a variety of free presentations throughout the day. Download the schedule from this link.
