Edible Landscaping: Urban Food Gardens That Look Great Join award-winning landscape architect Senga Lindsay when she launches her debut book Edible Landscaping: Urban Food Gardens That Look Great ($19.95, Harbour Publishing) at Barbara-Jo’s Books to Cooks in Vancouver—1754 West 2nd Avenue on Saturday, June 9th from 1:00-3:00 pm.

The classic vision of a vegetable garden as row upon row of leafy greens—often bordered by a white picket fence and a caretaker wearing gumboots and a sunhat—isn’t possible for most people living in urban areas where land is scarce. In Edible Landscaping, space is no issue; award-winning landscape architect Senga Lindsay reveals how a roof or windowsill can serve as a cozy home for a chic edible garden or a delicious corner retreat. Senga Lindsay will host a series of edible Edible Landscaping includes advice on the most resilient and rewarding edible plants, and garden design talks featuring Edible Landscaping at the detailed plans for fifteen types of urban gardens, from green roofs to children’s gardens to hangfollowing locations around Vancouver: ing containers. These plans cover everything from design elements to planting tips. Plans for the permaculture garden suggest space-saving options, like planting in guilds—that is, group together • Sunday, June 10th from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm: a species that exploit the same resources—and the edible boulevard plans touch on consulting Garden Works, 705 West Third Street, North Vancouver with the local authorities about policies for growing on public land. Throughout the book, the gardener is encouraged to think like a designer, contemplating not just growing conditions, but • Saturday, June 16th from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm: space, theme and style. Save-On-Foods, 333 Brooksbank Avenue, North Vancouver Interest in sustainable food practices and a 100-mile diet has blossomed over the past few years. Edible Landscaping demonstrates how simple it can be to accomplish this in any environment, be it a boulevard, backyard or merely a balcony. In this collection of planting tips and design strategies, urban dwellers and suburbanites can grow a supply of fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs while creating a beautiful view. At this launch, enjoy a presentation on edible garden design with Senga Lindsay over complimentary snacks and beverages. For more information about this free event, please call Books to Cooks at 604.688.6755 or email bookstocooks@shaw.ca. Edible Landscaping will be available the first week of June.

Vancouver designer showcasing RONA’s new paint collection 5297-1 Fog 4365-1 Looks yummy 4266-1 French grey

Spring/Summer

Teresa Ryback, British Columbia

5297-1 Fog British Columbiaʼs spectacular settings provide a natural colour palette for an impressionistic interpretation. The beauty and tranquility of Canada's most western province has long served as an inspiration to generations of artists capturing the timeless, majestic sceneries.

4365-1 Looks Yummy This palette is inspired by washed white riverbeds, serene lakes, dramatic coastal beaches, stunning sunsets, and the enchanting cherry blossoms that line our city streets and boulevards announcing the arrival of spring.

Specializing in tantalizing both the visual and the tactile senses, Teresa’s commitment to creating timeless interiors has earned her multiple awards and accolades for residential design excellence. www.tdswansburg.com

northshoreoutlook.com

4266-1 French Grey Capturing the shades that define our seasons, while considering all regions of B.C., was primary to this process. My selections are presented through the eyes of an artist, with colours that we see every season but may bustlingly overlook. Shades like the soft light that is cast on our walking trails and beaches, the colour gradient of a summer sky or the glow of the glass towers that commandingly overlook the landscape of Vancouver.
