crevice garden installation

Jeremy, Kenton Seth, and Paul Spriggs installed the first crevice rock garden in Portland, Oregon, this past June. The project, funded by the North American Rock Garden Society and private donors, was installed at Rancho Cistus Botanic Garden as a demonstration garden to coincide with the annual meeting of the American Public Gardens Association. Jeremy, who organized and coordinated the project, will describe the idea behind the project, organizing the team, selecting and installing stone and plants, as well as the response from the APGA members.
