Based on positive member feedback on the 2018 mini-symposium program format, we have planned 5 programs for 2019. Each of these will be 4-6 hours in length which allows for a deep dive into the subject matter, and ample time for networking and Chapter business. 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!

Creating Sanctuary

As landscape designers we are asked to create spaces for a multitude of purposes: growing food, dining, lounging with friends, playing catch with the dog - and we strive to make all of those spaces feel unique to the people who will be living in them. When we are asked to create intentional sanctuary, it can require an 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 environment.

Drawing from 20 years of experience and her fresh off the press, newly released "Creating Sanctuary: Sacred Garden Spaces, Plant-Based Medicine, and Daily Practices to Achieve Happiness and Well-Being" Jessi Bloom will lead participants through processes used to create the spaces desired to achieve sanctuary or sacred space. Using permaculture ethics and ecological layering to start, help guide our clients be more in harmony with the natural world around them which can nurture their bodies, minds, and souls. This workshop can help a designer with client communication for sensitive projects.

Participants are encouraged to get the new book with registration as it will contain detailed plant lists and their specific uses as well as unique elements to incorporate into designs.

The Agenda:

  1. Defining sanctuary/healing spaces versus traditional landscape.
  2. The Design process and special considerations for assessing the site, client conversations and overcoming barriers.
  3. Plants & other elements – selection by layers, ecological services, healing or sacred purpose.
  4. Group work: 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.
