HAYESVILLE, NC: Moss Memorial Library Lecture November 13, 2010, at 2:00 p.m. North Carolina Tarheel Arty Schronce, will present a program on WHITE TRASH LANDSCAPING. This presentation depicts "a loving and humorous look at gardens of the rural south with an emphasis on their style and use of heirloom plants and ornamentation". He loves looking at the choices people make in their landscapes. He examines the history and reasons behind the plants, the decorative items and the overall style of their gardens. He considers himself "a Horticultural Margaret Mead and White Trash Gardens are his Samoa". He sees these gardens as a form of folk art and loves them and the people who create them. As a young man with a limited budget and trips to the great Gardens of Britain out of the question, he became a student of the great gardens around him. Arty is director of Public Affairs for the Georgia Dept. of Agriculture. He handles media issues and writes a column called {Arty's Garden} and a weekly Q&A column that often deals with gardening questions. He was senior horticulturist for the H. G. Hastings Company. He is a graduate of N.C. State University where he was also a writer for the Extension Service and had a weekly column that was carried in newspapers across the State. Arty has been involved in horticulture since his family opened a nursery in Iron Station (Lincoln County), N.C. in 1971. It was there that he earned the title of "the youngest grower in town". Hayesville is just 15 minutes north of Young Harris GA via Ga17/Nc69. For information call: (828) 389-8401)

"The most serious gardening I do would seem very strange to an onlooker, for it involves hours of walking round in circles,
apparently doing nothing. What I'm doing is forcing myself to evaluate certain areas....
Only during these quiet moments does a good idea suddenly occur."
~ Helen Dillon, Irish garden writer
