Tired of the short, cold days? Come and escape for just a bit with Hayfork Cooperative’s meeting with Helen Stone, who is presenting some colorful, gorgeous landscapes of Italy. We will meet on Wednesday, January 16th from 7 – 9 pm at Northern Delights Coffeehouse, 7091 State Highway 3 (‘Main street’), Hayfork. Horticulturist and garden writer Helen Stone will take viewers on a rich and vibrant journey through the landscapes and seascapes of Italy.
“I had the privilege of taking a Backroads hiking tour with a small group that took us through Cinque Terre and Tuscany,” Stone says. “Then we finished with three days on the Amalfi Coast. It was a trip of a lifetime and I’m thrilled to be able to share.”
Learn about vertical grape growing on the rugged coast, plant introductions in Rome and pine trees in Pompeii. Although the presentation will lean toward horticulture, it will also include a little history and some fun food facts. But mostly, there will be many dazzling photos filled with color and light. This will be free, to all.
