Lambertville Goes Wild (LGW)

Lambertville Goes Wild will sponsor a three-part learning series "Learn to Landscape: Dream, Design, and Detail" at the Lambertville Public Library, 6 Lily Street, Lambertville, New Jersey.

Lauren Kovacs, LLA, a landscape architect with over ten years of experience in sustainable landscape design, will guide participants through their design practice: from dreaming up a garden style, through designing useful spaces, to understanding installation details.

Please register in advance at LambertvilleGoesWild@gmail.com to save your place; space is limited to 20 participants per session. Attendance at all 3 sessions is preferred but not required. Please indicate which sessions you will attend in your email.


Session 1 - DREAM - Saturday, February 24, from 10:30 a.m.12 p.m.
Learn basic garden styles and how to build your design palette. Not "a creative type"? No problem! Participants will learn where to look for and how to catalog project styles and elements. This session will also provide detailed instructions on how to create a base map of your property for use in the following Design session.

Session 2 - DESIGN - Saturday, March 24, from 10:30 a.m.12 p.m.
Learn how to create a functional home landscape. In this session, participants will learn how to prioritize and plan project spaces and elements. From hardscape and garden beds to arbors and umbrellas, learn to visualize your garden in three dimensions to create your own sense of place.

Session 3 - DETAIL - Saturday, April 28, from 10:30 a.m.12 p.m.
In this hands-on workshop, get help combining your style(s), favorite elements, and desired spaces into a harmonious composition. Bring your images, sketches, and questions to Lauren and her team for personalized advice. From detailing and installing a patio to choosing the right plants for your garden, our team can get you on the path to a final garden design and realistic implementation plan.

Lambertville Goes Wild is a volunteer group working to promote wider use of native plants as a key part of its aim to certify Lambertville as a Community Wildlife Habitat recognized by the National Wildlife Federation. To reach our goal, several public spaces, such as parks and schools, and about 100 private properties need to support native species such as butterflies, birds, and bees by providing food, water, cover, and places to raise young.

Lambertville Goes Wild is reaching out to the residents of Lambertville to encourage and assist them in certifying their properties. More information is available at LambertvilleGoesWild.weebly.com and on the Lambertville Goes Wild Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/LambertvilleGoesWildwithGardensforWildlife/


April 2018 ... In the Gallery


The Painters' Collective is a group of painters who met several years ago while studying together in Lambertville, NJ. They continue to study and paint together in the studio and outdoors. Their work is mainly alla prima (done in one sitting) and completed from direct observation. They paint landscapes and still life subjects.

Members include: Jeff Charlesworth, Phyllis Haldeman, Kathie Jankauskas, Roy Reinard, Cindy Ruenes, Kathy Schroeher, Dave Stahl and Andrea Wallace. They have had their artwork accepted into various juried shows including the Phillips' Mill Art Exhibition, the Lambertville Historical Society's Annual Juried Exhibition, the New Hope Art League's Juried Exhibition, the Annual Artsbridge Juried Exhibition, New Hope Arts Juried Show and the Ellarslie Juried Show. Members have also exhibited at Stover Mill, the Tinicum Arts Festival, and the Canal Frame Craft Gallery.

Coming from a variety of backgrounds, they each bring a unique perspective to the group. A passion for creating art connects them.
