A Symposium and Silent Auction

Photos from this successful GPPA event!

The parterre garden at the Atlanta Botanical Garden provided the perfect
entrance to put attendees in the gardening mood yesterday as we all arrived for
"The Inspired Gardener" Symposium! ~Tim

Karla Tievsky and Marcia Radakovich enjoying Stephanie Cohen's presentation.

John Ragland manning the table of catalogs and other materials from some of our donors.

Jack Driskell was being inundated with questions about the best deals at the silent auction table!

Auction co-chair Robert E. Meaders with Roger Duvall.

Silent auction co-chair Kacey Cloues even had a few minutes to do
some last minute checking on items just before the doors opened for the day.

Karla Tievsky welcoming attendees to the Symposium (which she orchestrated beautifully!).

GPPA President Patricia Collins also welcomed guests to a day of education and fun.

Past GPPA President Linda Copeland introduced speaker Katy Moss Warner,
whose program was titled, "Beautiful Landscapes, The Key to Healthy Communities".

Shannon Carr Pable delivered a great program about incorporating natives into the garden.

Sara Henderson always seems to be surrounded by flowers!

The Perennial Diva herself, Stephanie Cohen!

Steve Brady's presentation took the mystery out of growing small fruits in the
urban/suburban garden, just in time to plant blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and the like!

Tim Martin shared design lessons from several of the "great" English gardens.
