November Meeting Recap

Forty members and guests attended this month’s general meeting and program at the Rowayton Community Center. The presentation by Jan Johnsen, principal of Johnsen’s Landscapes and Pools, “Learning from Before and After” was highly informative and inspiring.

Jan Johnsen has been a principal in Johnsen Landscapes and Pools, a landscape design-and-build firm based in Westchester, NY, for more than thirty years. A favorite speaker of our club members, Jan used illustrative before and after photos of various projects which she has executed throughout her career. She shared specific tips, techniques and design possibilities to make-over or enhance your garden.

Attendees received a plant list and were able to participate in a drawing for a copy of one of Ms. Johnsen’s books: Gardentopia (2019) or Floratopia (2021).  After an informative Q and A, her books will be available for purchase and signing.
