Farmington Community Library Lecture & Book Signing


On Saturday, March 23, at 2 p.m., the Farmington main library will host Emmy-nominated TV host, lifestyle expert and best-selling gardening author Mar Jennings to discuss his photographic essay documenting the four seasons of his Connecticut garden and garden studio, from the lawn to the layout and from the flowers to the folly all directly inspired by visits to and plans of traditional English gardens. This amazing presentation shows Mar’s beautiful garden design, detail and implementation ideas that are easyenough for novices and interesting enough for seasoned gardeners.

His garden, the subject of his award-winningbook, “Life on Mar’s, A Four Season Garden,” has been featured on television shows and magazines across the country. He will share a wealth of inspirational ideas and creative projects to dress up your home, garden, and life. Mar simplifies the art of casual luxury while showing you how to develop your green thumb and flair for design. With Mar’s sophisticated sense of style, color and harmony, you will be inspired by the spirit of the outdoors. A book sale and signing of his book “Life on Mar’s: A Four Season Garden” will follow.
