Clinton, CT - Renowned landscape designer Maureen Haseley-Jones will be speaking from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 16, 2007 at the Henry Carter Hull Library in Clinton, Connecticut.

Also known as The English Lady, Ms. Haseley-Jones is a sought after and highly respected lecturer, writer, and radio gardening expert heard monthly on WRCH Radio Lite100.5 FM by thousands of dedicated fans throughout Connecticut.

Her lecture series titled “Garden Earth,” aims to reconnect people’s hearts and hands with the nourishing energy of Mother Nature’s life giving gardens. In her naturally humorous and upbeat manner, The English Lady will teach how each of us can oxygenate our environment and feed our souls in a co-creative and symbiotic relationship with the Earth.

She will teach not only how to create a beautiful garden that flourishes but more importantly how to maintain it organically and without the use of harmful poisons. But even closer to her heart, The English Lady will discuss ways in which we can, through our garden’s living spirit, become grounded in our bodies, inspired to reach beyond them, and connect at a deeper level of our beings with the meaning and purpose of Mother Nature and her changing seasons.

The English Lady recognizes that now, more than any other time in our history people need to make conscious choices about their health, lifestyle, and homes. This is imperative not only for mankind, but our planet as well. “We are inexorably entwined with the earth” she says. “People need to know that even the smallest gesture of a garden has positive affects and rewards on the environment.”
