    Revolutionary landscape designer Piet Oudolf is known for designing public works like New York City’s popular High Line and the Lurie Garden in Chicago’s Millennium Park that redefine our conception of gardens as works of art in themselves.

    This gorgeous, meditative documentary immerses viewers in his work, taking us inside Oudolf’s creative process. From his aesthetic theories to his strikingly abstract sketches to the ecological implications of his ideas, the film poetically reveals how Oudolf upends conventional notions of nature, public space, and, ultimately, beauty itself.


    • BARN Garden Arts and the Bloedel Reserve are co-hosting this inspirational film. We hope you can join us!
    • This is a free event for the community but please register so we know how many people to set up for.

    Just as a cup of tea can settle and soothe us, the right poem at the right time can be a powerful sustaining remedy.

    Poet and performer Judith Adams explores poetry’s restorative powers by reciting and exploring poems that help us understand grief, fear, sadness, loss, and much more.  By sharing her love of poetry, Adams encourages audiences to share poems that have deeply touched their lives and discusses how writing poetry can be a potent medicine for us all.

    Judith Adams is an English-born poet who has lived in the United States since 1976.  Adams has published four books of poetry, conducted poetry workshops, recorded several albums of her work, and published her poems in magazines and anthologies.  Adams has held reading at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, the Frye Art Museum, and Third Place Books.  Adams lives on Whidbey Island.
