Aton Forest hosted a well-attended lecture by noted landscape designer and instructor Larry Weaner

Aton Forest co-hosted a lecture with the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival on Saturday, August 6 entitled "Musical Composition and Natural Landscape Design: Harmony, Rhythm, and Time." The well-attended talk was presented in the beautiful Battell Recital Hall. Larry used musical excerpts and a powerpoint to demonstrate how his designed landscapes make use of elements common to both music and gardening. Larry beautifully showed how elements such as harmony, repetition, solos and rhythm inspire his ecological gardens. Larry is a noted landscape designer and guest lecturer who with his firm, Larry Weaner Landscape Associates, has created native landscapes since 1977, combining the best of traditional garden design with principles of ecological restoration. If you are interested in the opportunity to learn from an award winning landscape designer and nationally recognized instructor in naturalistic landscaping, be sure not to miss the workshop "Naturalistic Landscaping Design" with Larry at Aton Forest on September 17, 2011.
