Our programs evolve from member suggestions, and we have revamped the 2018 program line-up to better meet member needs. The Program Committee is organizing 4 ‘mini-Symposiums’. Each of these programs will be 4-6 hours in length, which will allow us to delve deeper into the subject matter. And, networking time, which is always integral to every program, is being expanded. We will continue to address issues related to professional growth, design exposure, national certification and business/legislative advocacy. Be sure to share your thoughts and ideas with the Program Committee!

APLDWA December Event:

Creating Sanctuary

Thursday, December 6, 9:30-12:30

Location: 21 Acres Center 13701 NE 171st St, Woodinville, WA 98072

Cost: Members $85 includes purchase of book, $60 without book.
Non Members $110 includes purchase of book, $85 without book.
(Registration Coming Soon!)

As landscape designers we are asked to create spaces for a multitude of purposes-dining, lounging with friends, playing catch with the dog, growing food- and we strive to make all of those spaces feel unique to the family who will be living in them. When sanctuary is what we’re asked for it requires and even more deft hand and close attention to both what the landscape has to offer and what the client truly needs to connect on a deeper level with their space.

Drawing from her newly released book "Creating Sanctuary: Sacred Garden Spaces, Plant-Based Medicine, and Daily Practices to Achieve Happiness and Well-Being" Jessi Bloom will lead participants through a lecture and series of exercises to illustrate the practices and materials used to create spaces for our clients to "be in harmony with the natural world and nurture their bodies, minds, and souls".

Participants will be among the first in the country to have access to Jessi’s book! And, while the new book informs this workshop the agenda will expound on themes beyond the scope of the book, focusing on the special interests of professional designers.

The Agenda:

  1. Defining sanctuary/healing spaces versus traditional landscapes
  2. Special considerations for assessing the site, client conversations and overcoming barriers
  3. Applying design concepts to creating sacred spaces
  4. Choosing materials including use of sacred plants
  5. Design scenarios with charrettes and peer feedback

Jessi Bloom is a best-selling author, award-winning ecological landscape designer, and speaker. She owns N.W. Bloom EcoLogical Services, based in the Pacific Northwest, which is known as an innovator and leader in the field of permaculture, sustainable landscape design, construction and land management.



APLDWA September Event:

Understanding: 4 Muses-4 Materials

APLDWA Artist Group Show

For millennia—perhaps as early as 15,000 BC—the garden has been an integral thread in the fabric of the human experience. From the ancient Chinese and Egyptians to Instagram and Pinterest, we humans observe, admire and record the landscape.

Today's world has only increased our desire to connect with nature. And, the beauty of the botanical world continues to feed the magic of artists' imaginations.

*“Je crois que je commence `a y comprendre quelque chose.” - ~P. A. Renoir




Join APLDWA member artists as they celebrate the beauty of the garden in unique and inspiring ways.
